  • How many times have you heard

    the phrase, "People don't leave

    their jobs, they leave their

    bosses." or the phrase "I like my

    job, but I hate my boss."?

    According to, Westhill Consulting Career and Employment,

    Australia, Employees don't leave bad companies; They leave

    bad bosses. If the traits on this list don't sound familiar,

    perhaps you are the bad bosses. When you select your em

    ployees, it is up to yo u to make certain that they have the skills

    needed. Once the selection process is complete and the

    employee is in place, back off and allow their individual skills to

    enhance and grow the business. Micro-management only takes

    away from the employee, and slows their growth to enhance

    the company performance. No matter where you are in the

    world, Indonesia, Dubai, Europe or Africa, be considerate of

    other people.

    How To Know You Have A Good Boss

  • Stress, yes, stress, you are now probably about to quit reading

    this, but believe it or not, good bosses are actually supposed to

    give you stress. There are two kinds of stress, theres distress

    and eustress. Distress is the kind of stress you feel when you

    are being bullied, manipulated, or abused. Then there is

    eustress, which is positive stress brought on by good mentors

    and coaches who are trying to get you challenge your limits and

    succeed, or by physical therapists who are helping to

    strengthen your muscles to come back from an injury. A good

    boss should be giving you eustr ess, if you have a boss who

    wants you to do your best, he or she should be pushing you

    beyond your comfort zone, not (just) for the company, but for

    you then he is a good boss. We can only develop and grow

    when we have some degree of stress and this is something that

    great bosses know, and use to help you.

    Support, this is almost self-explanatory, a good boss should

    always have your back in public. At times a boss needs to be a

    bit tough on you. That's part of the job that is actually tough for

    the bosses as well. If he or she wants to take you to task quietly

    when no one is around, that's okay. But a boss who belittles,

    shames, or "throws you under the bus" in front of other people,

    is not a good boss. Public shaming is a no no and suggests that

    the problems you may be having at work have to do with your

    boss, not you.

  • Success -- This is the most important one. Your boss, like your

    parents, should be aiming for your success. If you don't feel like

    your boss is looking for ways to help further your career, or

    worse, is trying to sabotage you, then you don't have a boss --

    you have a problem. A good boss knows that when you look

    good he or she looks good. Bosses that try to keep you down

    out of fear that you might outshine them are toxic.
