Great Bosses – 8 Qualities, plus 2 More

Loved this article posted on LinkedIn. In brief, great bosses have these characteristics:

  1. They believe the unbelievable.
  2. They see opportunity in instability and uncertainty.
  3. They wear their emotions on their sleeves.
  4. They protect others from the bus.
  5. They’ve been there and done that… and still do that.
  6. They lead by permission not authority.
  7. They embrace a larger purpose.
  8. They take real, not fake risks.

and I add,

9. They mentor others.

10. They celebrate others’ successes.
