  1. I agree with the “Perfect Boss” characteristics you had listed above. However, I would like to add a few.

    1. Similar to ‘Communication with your employees’ your employee relations are crucial as well. Employees won’t work diligently if they are working for someone they hate! Improving employee relations will help you communicate with each other, and will increase employee morale, thus also increasing productivity.

    2. Continued from my last point, Employee morale is something you must keep note of as a boss. The American Psychological Association (http://www.apa.org/monitor/2010/12/morale.aspx) stresses the importance of ‘worker’ morale, making multiple statements claiming it will increase their productivity and attitude with the company.

    3. Finally, sticking to the ‘good guy’ theme, you can’t be a ‘good boss’ unless you are a good guy. Put yourself in the shoes of the employee, wouldn’t you treat your boss and the company similarly to how they treat you? We all know that bosses have the typical stereotype of being rude and obnoxious, but that doesn’t mean you have to be. It all comes back to relations and morale, the more respectful you are, the more productive your workers will be.

  2. Awesome advice! I especially agree with the line, “With very rare exceptions, it will not be possible for you to make your business a success by yourself. ” I have seen far too many “bad bosses” who think they are good bosses because they have their hands in every department.
    These folks get stuck micromanaging every aspect of the business. The first day they are away, boom, everything goes to pot. And forget about legacy or passing the business along after they’re gone. A good leader grooms and encourages leadership from within.
    I’d love to see more posts here on leadership and inspiring employees and staff.
