Executive Series: Bosses—The Great Ones
Recognizing and appreciating the positive influence of great bosses can help you understand what you value in your career. Great bosses know how to cultivate loyalty for life from the people who work for them. They treat you as a trusted partner, make you feel smart, give you great work, serve as a mentor, and do the unexpected. But working for a great boss can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so it’s important for employees to notice when it’s happening and show some gratitude.
