Despite doing two jobs at ago, the payment she received from her employers was hardly enough to enough to sustain her and pay her rent.
More so, her coworkers did nothing to prevent her exit despite telling them her reasons.
However, as detailed in the book, these effective management tools are absent in some corporations in America.
For instance, while Ehrenreich was working as a maid in Portland, Maine, the management did not care for its employees even if one of them got injured.
Definition Leadership is a process by which a person influences others to accomplish an objective and directs the organization in a way that makes it more cohesive and coherent.
Leaders carry out this process by applying their leadership attributes, such as beliefs, values, ethics, character, knowledge, and skills.Leadership of individual and group-level learning relates to the ways in which the leader supports or undermines learning at that level.Leadership of the organization level refers to the more typical domain of strategic management.Good leaders develop through a never ending process of self-study, education, training, and experience.To inspire workers into higher levels of teamwork, there are certain things a leader must be, know, and, do.In describing her experiences, Ehrenreich says that her performance was excellent at every position; however, she expresses grief over the lack of any motivation or good remarks from either the administration or her coworkers on her performance despite the fact that the responsibilities she was given required a lot of concentration and skills to be performed properly.For example, she opted out of her first job at Key West, Florida, because there was lack of motivation.More so, communicating with the management on issues related to performance improvement at the work place attracted an immediate dismissal.A notable experience that the author narrates regarding poor leadership and management style is when she worked in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at one of the Wal-Mart’s stores.Ehrenreich’s elaboration indicates that they find it hard to get by, and even more cumbersome to forge ways ahead.Thus, the issues she raises are due to poor leadership and management styles demonstrated by most American companies towards their workforce.
