Listen to the Pronouns

“If an employee comes to you with a problem, ask them questions first before offering a solution,” says Bob Rosner, author of The Boss’s Survival Guide. “Listen to the pronouns, if your employees use they/them and not we/us, you have problems." If your culture seems to be weak, Rosner suggests you start small. For example, before every meeting, give employees wadded up paper to throw at you when you say something wrong.
