Productivity 'stifled by dogmatic managers'
Poor management styles are hindering productivity of the UK workforce, it has been suggested.

According to the Chartered Management Institute, performance in offices around the country is suffering from the presence of overbearing and dogmatic management.

Collaborating with SimplyHealth, the institute discovered that out of 1,511 managers surveyed, those displaying negative leadership styles also recorded a high absence and sickness rate.

Director of marketing and corporate affairs at the Chartered Management Institute Jo Causon commented that the problem is a difficult one to overcome.

"Of course, improving the sense of wellbeing, determination and productivity, is no easy task but one that cannot be ignored. Left alone, it will only serve to reduce morale and lower the quality of working life," she said.

The results of the study showed that bureaucratic, reactive and authoritarian are the top three management styles in the UK.

A recent survey by Common Purpose revealed many managers are dissatisfied in their jobs.
