Letter to Leaders & Swenson Insights

The Best Boss I’ve Ever Had

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:

  1. Believes In Me/Looks Out For Me

  2. Pushed Me; Has High Expectations for me

  3. Lines of Communication are open; asks my opinion

  4. Does not micromanage, but holds me responsible

  5. Supports and encourages me

  6. Treats me as an equal/respects me

  7. Teaches me about both techinical and management issues

  8. Works With Me

Can you say that about your own management style?
