|Bosses Who Pigeonhole Workers Waste Talent, Contribute to Turnover|
|Topic||Managing Individuals and Teams|
|Key Words||promoting individuals, turnover|
Many managers quickly form rigid opinions about employees, then resist changing those views in spite of evidence that the employees possess talents that weren't apparent when they were first hired. As the employees express interest in different kinds of jobs, they are brushed aside, often becoming frustrated. Those who resign themselves to this end up contributing at a fraction of their potential. Others leave for more satisfying jobs at other companies, costing the company time and money in replacing them.
