This is the most accurate picture of all. Bad leaders really care for every s**t instead of for the big turds.

How Bosses Can Earn or Lose the Respect of Their Co-Workers?

What’s the difference between a good and a bad boss? Well, usually, the way they make their employees feel. Even though employers don't have to be liked by their employees, it is important to set up staff members for success and to support them in their work. According to The Balance Careers, those who repeatedly fail to do this will lose the respect of their employees and might even become disliked as people.

Bosses should be honest with themselves about their skills and their confidence. If they’re unsure of themselves, faking it is the worst way of going about it. employees will know, and they won't be willing to look to them for guidance. And the more they try to fool them, the bigger the resentment.

However, if bosses feel like they’re in over their heads, they can win the respect of their staff by confronting the shortcomings and making them a part of the solution. Seeking help from the employees who may have knowledge, experience, or insight that the bosses themselves lack is the way to go.

when i just started working as a cleaner, one day I was a bit late done with work. I was still in the building, but already had my coat on when someone came running to me in panic: a guest threw up and no one wanted to clean it up. I could have said "nope I'm gone" but didnt, and found a whole circle of people around the mess, and the poor woman sick as a dog and crying of shame. I was so pissed off (not at her) I cleaned it up rapidly without blinking an eye while everyone just stared. The next week, xmas gifts were given out, and I got an envelope with a 150 euro gift voucher in it. The person who handed me the envelop told me this was the first time ever that the cleaning woman got a voucher too. Apparently I impressed everyone with cleaning up someones puke in my own time, without complaining or blinking an eye :-D

How to Avoid Being a Bad Boss and Losing Your Employees’ Trust

Employees recognize when a boss is simply using them to make themselves look better or to further their own professional goals. They will be especially resentful if they are blamed for making their boss look bad. Everybody should have a role and know that role. To put it simply, it should be about the department or the company as a whole meeting a goal rather than the leader taking them there. To regain the respect of employees, a boss has to make sure everyone’s role is defined and that they all have an opportunity to share in the team’s success.

And even the most humble managers can incorrectly assess how much managing an employee needs. If they micromanage and nitpick their ideas and work, they will never tap into their discretionary energy or the best they have to offer.

Of course, this doesn't mean that employees in training and employees who change their positions or acquire new responsibilities are OK without guidance. But, if leaders aren't guiding them to lessen their own involvement, there’s a problem. Micromanaging good and productive employees is the easiest way to demotivate them.

This legit happened to me. Heavy downpour that flooded the parking lot outside my apartment,, the water had risen over all the cars and was on the porch coming through the doorway and flooding the downstairs apartments. I called my boss and told him what was going on. He said "you can't walk?" I said "it's at least 6 ft of water and I'm 5'4 and I'm not swimming to work for $7/hour."
