ABSTRACT
The article offers tips on overcoming job misery and achieving job satisfaction. Job dissatisfaction increases the cost of recruiting, hiring, and retraining employees. Employees begin to feel miserable about their jobs when their immediate superiors show little interest in them and when they do not see and realize the impact of their jobs. The author says managers should show interest in their people by overcoming their fear of being politically incorrect and the fear of looking as if they were insincere.
