- Does the manager empathise with your problems? The manager who expects only performance but is not interested in listening to the issues or finding solutions for the team is definitely less liked than a manager who empathises with the personal and professional issues and works towards finding solutions. A manager is not one who knows how to give orders, but is one who provides solutions and demonstrates higher end thinking than the team members.
