Recently, I was conducting this program for a professional services firm in Nevada. I asked the 6 executives in the room to think of the best boss they ever had. Once they had, I asked what was it that made them a great boss.
Their answers were so insightful I thought I’d share them with you:
Believes In Me/Looks Out For Me
Pushed Me; Has High Expectations for me
Lines of Communication are open; asks my opinion
Does not micromanage, but holds me responsible
Supports and encourages me
Treats me as an equal/respects me
Teaches me about both techinical and management issues
Works With Me
Can you say that about your own management style?
