Default What makes an excellent boss.


Absolutely positively agree with this, too bad that they are all too rare.
Engaged to the amazing Marmalady. She is my Silver Dragon, shining as bright as the sun. I her Black Dragon (though good honestly), dark as night..fierce and strong.

Wish I could share this with my last boss. He made most if not all of those mistakes.

I am happy to say that my boss gets high marks on all eight points. Unfortunately, few of the other managers score any points.

OMG #3......

Sorry, just...never had that at work...not once in 33 years.
Not sure who I am anymore, where I am, or where I'm going. I only know where I've been, and you don't get far if you spend all your time looking backwards.

Thank you, Mytical, for posting this link. I checked it out and am very proud to say that my boss ranks up there as not just "extraordinary", but he is phenominal! I posted the link to the article on my FB page as well.

Some of you remember my time working for the doc's office. I actually was employed by someone who I considered at that time to be my best friend although she didn't actually work in the office. She was a co-owner and her hubby was one of the 2 docs that I worked for directly. The person that was the office manager had me in tears EVERY SINGLE FREAKIN DAY! I don't know how I ever got the courage to leave, but I did. Two + years later, I'm still fighting the feeling that I'm not good enough, don't know enough, will never be anything more feelings. Not that I am any of those, but that bitch had the audacity to make me feel that way!

My current boss always makes sure we know we are appreciated/valued, encourages free thinking/new ideas, and works to ensure that not only does our work get done and get done correctly the first time, but also ensures that his employees are happy at work. An unhappy employee tends to make others unhappy, too. He realizes that if you aren't dreading coming to work, you'll actually do a good job. Very rare.

And, the best part of all---HE HAS A BACKBONE AND STANDS UP FOR US! That's another story in itself. Soon.......
