Description

Where an employee who has made a mistake often suffices with a simple "sorry", a manager must provide more text and explanation after a mistake. Employees often suspect a double agenda and are therefore less forgiving.Research by the RSM shows that employees are not that forgiving when it comes to their supervisors. This is mainly because an employee and a manager are not equal. After all, the manager has a higher position and therefore more power. In general, the more power the person who makes his apologies has, the less willing there is to forgive him.
