What would you guys say makes a good boss, manager, leader, etc in a company environment (or in general)?
Our company is going through a multitude of changes and a few of my colleagues stated that I should apply for a management level position because they believe I have qualities that would help me prosper in a management/leadership role. So I’ve been thinking about it, but I’m not sure if I have those qualities.
I mean I work hard, I know how to adjust to situations that come up, I know when to be stern and when to back off. I look at it like I know how to treat people like people, but also when to push the right buttons.
For all of you that are in leadership positions (even own your own company), what traits would you say make a good leader? How did you get there?
For all you of that have great bosses, what makes them good?
I think not micromanaging and allowing people to do their jobs is huge. I also a big believer in emphasizing a person’s strengths.
