When you think about employee motivation, the role of the manager cannot be underestimated. The manager plays such an important role in the life of an employee. Even the most motivated employees want regular interaction with and feedback from their manager. Just a simple "hi" with a smile in the morning starts the employee's day off on a positive note.

From that moment, different employees have different needs for interaction time with their manager. That's why I like the concept of situational leadership so much. The interaction depends on the needs of the employee, their development in their job, the needs of the company, and the interaction style of the manager.
