Is your boss a horrible one?

This morning on my way to work, the radio DJ was announcing how horrible some bosses are.

A New York woman who donated a kidney so her ailing boss to save her boss’ life was fired shortly after the operation. I remembered I had a horrible boss too when I just started work. My boss required me to work 6 days a week and putting in 15 hours of work every day. I had to forgo my friends and family. When I voiced out my concern, she wasn’t too please and wanted me to leave the job.

I believe somehow or another, there are many horrible bosses out there. Some bosses are good tai chi where they push all the junk to you and get the credit. Some have unrealistic demand where it is impossible to achieve, while some bosses are weak in their leadership resulting their subordinates and the entire department under his/her leadership got trashed by other departments. Worst of all are bosses that are not appreciative and treat their subordinates like dirt. These type of bosses are slave drivers.

For those of you are already a boss out there, do treat your staffs nice. We're humans too and respect has to be earned. Respect your staffs and you will be highly respected in return. Relationship always build 2-ways. Remember your root where you were once at the lower food chain.
