It is quite natural: If you have a great idea, it feels good when others telling you: “Waoh, That’s a fantastic idea.” It is so good for your ego, isn’t it?

But be careful: If your employees tell you always how great you and your ideas are, something is going terribly wrong.

Hi Bernd,

So, having a company culture with plenty of disagreement is a good thing? Sounds like my business organization is super healthy. :) Seriously, I think there's a lot to be said for spirited discussion and I tend to get nervous if all I can hear is silence after I speak. If you're surrounded by "yes" men, it means you do all the work yourself. Thanks for the post and for sharing it with the BizSugar community, as always.

Heather, Thanks for your comment.

Yes, sometimes it may not feel right if you get lots of discussions with your employees, but mostly this is a good sign because your employees really care about what they are doing and about your company.
