Four Traits of Terrible Bosses
According to an expert on leadership and middle management, here are the top four traits of terrible bosses.
#1.) They Act Like They're Above You. A good boss makes you feel like everyone's part of the same team. But a lot of people in middle management like to make it abundantly clear that YOU are working for THEM.
#2.) They're Not Transparent. Good bosses don't come across like they have a hidden agenda. And they also don't try to solve every problem on their own.
#3.) They're Undisciplined. A good boss keeps tabs on everything, and they're clear about what their expectations are. Bad bosses tend to ask for something, then not follow up until two weeks later, right before they NEED it.
#4.) They're Detached. Meaning they're always in their office, and don't have much face-to-face time with you. Which doesn't just kill morale, but It's also bad for business, because without spending time around their staff, they don't get a solid idea of what your strengths and weaknesses are.
