I just wanna firstly say that I've been listening to Manager Tools for a nearly two years and I think it's absolutely awesome. I listen to it almost everyday, in the gym, in the car, or whenever I needed a bit of interllectual stimulants (but i'm not a complete psycho, and I do listen other podcasts too!). And I think that you guys give too much away for free!
Anyway, I have heard repeatedly that "never give your boss feedback" because it's detrimental to your career. What do you recommend, if you think that your boss is being ineffective and makes poor managerial decisions that negatively impact your productivity and that of your team? My boss doesn't do one-on-ones. In fact, we had our "annual review" last week for the first time in 2 and a half years, so his relationship power with the team is, I believe, poor. He frequently gives negative feedback against new ideas and changes. Is leaving the company the only option that I have left?
