They give you short an­swers

Herworld (Singapore) - - CHEATSHEETS -

#3: It’s one thing for your em­ploy­ees to get straight to the point, but curt an­swers also show that your sub­or­di­nates are un­in­ter­ested in small talk. This could mean that they see you strictly as a “boss” and are draw­ing pro­fes­sional lines… or that they sim­ply don’t like you and don’t want to build a re­la­tion­ship. As­sis­tant man­ager Wanda Lau says: “I don’t want to have too much in­ter­ac­tion out­side of work, or build any re­la­tion­ship other than the em­ployee-em­ployer one, with my boss. I don’t see the need to be friends.”
