How do regular consultations between managers and their subordinates impact productivity and job satisfaction?
That depends upon the nature of the consultations. If the managers are critical and micromanage, the job satisfaction and productivity usually goes down. If the managers treat the subordinates as coworkers, job satisfaction and productivity usually is high.
The major concept to keep in mind is that job satisfaction is the key to productivity.

I hope that this answer is helpful.
