A boss who is a control freak and wants to dominate all activities and be obeyed without questioning needs to learn that blind obedience is not the most efficient way to run a business.

A stubborn boss who thinks that he never makes mistakes or is not willing to evaluate opposing opinions and judge them on their merit is an egomaniac who is bad for business.

Indecisiveness or an absence of needed confidence is also bad which frequently shows that a boss is too inexperienced or a bad leader who seems not to know what to do or how to lead.

A boss interested in the status quo or one resistant to change of any kind will not adapt when necessary or when it becomes obvious that change is necessary for the business to continue thriving under new circumstances.

Micromanaging employee behavior stifles employee growth in learning new skills necessary for advancement and sense of selfmotivating personal accomplishment.

Threats of punishment or firing or using tyrannical fear to motivate employees to work well will not only cause heavy turnover of employees but less efficient work habits and your employees will hate you.

Showing favoritism to certain employees who are not efficient and productive workers will demoralize the good workers, ruin good team effort, and make them less productive and less respectful of the boss.

An arrogant bragging boss is not a pretty sight and the feelings of superiority are seldom shared by employees.

An angry emotional boss not only ruins a secure productive work environment but emotional subjectivity frequently ignores objective facts which need to be considered and adapted to to make work more productive.

A blaming boss who never admits that mistakes are sometimes his or her fault too and takes all credit for success is a selfish fool with a faulty me against you attitude.

Conclusion:

Not every imperfect boss has all the above bad characteristics or they would not survive as a boss in any business but each additional bad characteristic which you have makes you a progressively worse boss.

THE TRUTH ABOUT RUMORS

Rumor: v. to currently circulate information of uncertain and/or doubtful truth

Some rumors are outright lies designed to hurt someone’s reputation. If you start an untrue rumor then chances are great that it will come back to bite you sooner or later and your own reputation will be tarnished when someone finds out who the source of the untrue rumor really is.

Spreading rumors which are untrue or highly doubtful is malicious gossip and you should try and avoid becoming part of an unjust rumor mill. To determine whether a rumor is untrue check the source. If it is someone with a reputation for spreading untrue rumors then don’t accept it as the truth and definitely don’t spread it further or you too will be blamed for spreading lies.

If the source of the rumor is someone whom you trust then you have the choice of spreading it further or keeping the juicy information to yourself. If the rumor is something bad about a human whose respect you want then the best thing to do is just to keep it to yourself and save it for the future in case you need ammunition to fight back if you are victimized by some injustice.
