Jeff Hindenach | SalesHQ

December 14, 2009


We’ve all had bosses that we’ve either loved or hated. The boss who helped you get that promotion, or the one who clipped his toenails at his desk.

    You should probably try to have all elements of the "Best" bosses. In general, I find it important to be a "situational" Boss, every person working for you has a slightly different business ethic, and are motivated to work in different ways, you must find these and help them achieve their goals. There is no such thing as "one size fits all" boss.
    Good article!

    the delusional constantly disappointed bully is even worse. "what, you didn't do the billion things i didn't even ask you to do that you don't know about? great, you better do them twice as fast now, cause you've put us behind."

    The WORST boss is the sociopath who not only refuses to pay you, but seeks to personally destroy your reputation because of his own narcissism/control/insecurity issues. All other types (short of the axe murderers) are merely inconveniences...
