Do Bad Managers Cause Bad Morale?

There is an old adage that "people don't quit their jobs, they quit their manager". But it it completeley true? In reality, the number one reason people quit their jobs is due to lack of career growth and development opportunities. In a survey conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management, the most common reason cited for quitting a job was "limited opportunities for advancement." 

Employees want to feel that they are growing and developing professionally, and a lack of advancement opportunities can make them feel stagnant and unfulfilled in their current role. Additionally, a lack of clear career growth path and development opportunities can also make employees feel like they are not valued by their employer, leading to low morale and a desire to seek out new opportunities elsewhere.
