Our reader poll today asks: What’s your current view of your boss?
– They’re amazing! Best boss ever!: 18%
– They’re good. We work well together: 44%
– They’re OK. Nothing special: 19%
– They’re poor. I need a new boss: 13%
– Worst boss ever! Get me out of here: 6%
Lots of good bosses. Most of you seem pretty pleased with the person you work for (62%). That said, there are plenty of mediocre or poor bosses out there. Ask yourself some tough questions given these results. Where would your people put you on this scale as their boss? Have you provided your boss with feedback as to what they can do better? If they’re not aware of what’s not working well, they can’t change it. For those of you who are in that bottom 19%, what are you doing about your situation? Are you looking for a new role? Building your skills to create more opportunities for yourself? If your situation isn’t changing, consider changing your situation.
