We Think We’re a Great Boss, but
What Really Matters is What They Think
Whether we ended up in a leadership position because we discovered we’ve mastered the art of our trade and decided to open our own business or we’ve climbed the ranks of corporate America, most of us think we’re doing a pretty good job as a leader. Some of us even take measures to constantly try to improve. Most of us know that we need support, such as a dedicated coach or trusted advisor, and most of us genuinely try to be the best boss we can.
Truth be told – just because we think we’re a great boss doesn’t mean our staff does. As a matter of fact, chances are there is a lot to be said if they were forthcoming with whether our abilities actually measured up.

They are far more likely to tend to our clients the way we need them to.
