What do you think a good boss should do? What do you think a good boss should not do?
What do you think are some things a good boss (boss/supervisor/manager) should do?
What do you think are some things a good boss should not do?
No, I’m not writing an employee handbook. Just through my work for an organization that advocates for employees, I come across this issue every day. Also, I am in touch with my previous bosses, and I remember fondly the things the good ones did, and I am reminded of the things the bad ones did.
I can start with two things I think off right off the bat.
A boss should not gossip (either personal gossip or work related issues) about their subordinates to other subordinates.
A boss should not disparage their employee(s) in front of others – in front of members of the public, customers, other employees, etc. They should reprimand their workers privately, but to others, they should be diplomatic and supportive of their staff.
