Why in some companies, directors or owners are very silent and treat the employees humbly but managers behave in a rude manner to their subordinates or juniors as if the company belongs to them. should they not learn good things from the director of the company.
At operational level, it is not possible to extract work from the subordinates without being strict disciplinarians. The supervisors are meant to supervise and slackness in their duty will show dereliction and the output will not be to the desired level.
The owners/directors are not directly concerned with the staff/ workers; they want output which they get only due to the good managerial tactics of the immediate bosses, so they don't have any grudge with their employees and therefore before decently.

They want to make their position tight and secured by showing off to the big boss that they are protecting the interest of the company. To a large extent, they also succeed. What to do? It is their livelihood.
