Do i look intimidating quiz
Not much says "leave me alone" more than keeping your office door closed, not talking to team members because they're less senior than you, or expecting people to address you differently from everyone else!
They're not scared about being knocked back, because they know their manager is open to their suggestions and will consider them fairly.
You may find that a simple change to the way you manage will make a huge difference. You are approachable, which means your team members feel relatively little fear in coming to you when they have a problem or an idea.
This is because your reaction to bad news is measured and calm, and you treat ideas with relish and positivity.
When you're approachable, team members do not sit on, or cover up, problems.
This means that they are able to bring issues to you before they become full-blown crises, because they know you won't react badly.
