A lot of less prestigious jobs consist of young and/or under educated/trained employees. This can be very frustrating to a supervisor running a shift full of rowdy teenagers, especially if a boss has been thrown into their position without being taught how to deal with such circumstances. This is often the main problem with poor managers; therefore they substitute the needed skills with yelling, intimidation, and undeserved disrespect of their employees.

(Rose) Society makes it difficult for service workers to get ahead and play a big role in teaching these ways in the world. The point Rose was making is that intelligence isn’t just based on testing.

While he is extremely bright and hard-working, he appears to lack essential leadership skills needed to manage people. Alex needs to get involved in getting to know people better in order to be able to guide his team in achieving common goals rather than just his own personal ones. He needs to improve his leadership style and learn to motivate his subordinates and give them the credit they deserve in order to get the work done.

She often calls up the HODs for meeting just to settle some minor issue, yet the discussion or the decision making process is always ineffective.
