If you have a true leader as a manager, not a "boss" (horrible word), you'd find more employees would be loyal to them. Maybe not to the company - but the employees would be willing to stick around with a good leader. It's a tragedy that petty-minded, micro-managing middle and upper management keep their jobs and get kudos, while those who labor under them, taking the toll both physically and psychologically, are blamed for leaving when the control-freaks and ego-maniacs over them get to be too much to handle. Unfortunately, the current attitude of TPTB appears to be "Well, it's an employer's market", i.e. "screw you, we can replace you in a week". So, instead of fostering a culture of leadership, employee growth, communication, and LOYALTY, they create fear, hostility, isolation, and ultimately, people who only stay because there isn't another job open elsewhere. You can't have optimum productivity in that kind of environment!
