Surveys show that workers aren’t resentful of CEOs’ exorbitant pay-in fact, Americans in general are surprisingly blasé about inequality-but that’s partly because they aspire to that pinnacle. People hunger to be managers because they know that’s the only path to the good life in corporate America . . . which is one reason why we have so many inept managers. This is yet another argument in favor of reducing the pay gap between management and non-management. If organizations can offer many of the rewards without necessarily the supervisory tasks-reducing the hunger to make an upward leap-and do a better job working with employees to match responsibilities with ability and ambition, they can go a long way toward eliminating not just incompetence but the cause of incompetence.
