- Your boss isn’t great when he or she yells and screams at you, in front of others, numerous times; even if they apologize to you later. At the very least they need to apologize to you in front of everyone.
- Your boss isn’t great if you’re fearful of taking more than a 30 minute lunch break, even though you work 45-50 hrs per week
- Your boss isn’t great if he or she empowers you to make decisions then reverses all your decisions rather than support/mentor you to success.
Recently I was talking with a woman regarding her new position as Director of a healthcare organization. She reports to a Regional Director. She described her boss as great. Yet in our ten minute conversation she described the boss above. She says she has a great boss.
