Who's The Boss?
Do you have a great boss? If you don't, have you ever had a good boss? What made that boss so good?
The best boss I ever had was my last principal before I retired. He brought out the best in others. He assumed that everyone was doing his/her best or at least wanted to do his/her best. When anyone was in a conversation with him, it didn't matter if you were a student, a janitor, a teacher, or a parent - you had his undivided attention. He always had time.
What kind of a boss are we when it comes to working out or following our plan for weight loss and health? Are these things important enough to get our undivided attention during that hour or so of working out? Is the food we choose to eat our best effort toward reaching our goals?
I am guessing many of you have or have had a bad boss. We don't have much respect for those people and drag our feet meeting deadlines and watch the clock because we can't wait to get out of our workplace. These bosses do not bring out the best in us.
What kind of a boss are you? Would you want to work for someone like you? Would you want to hire a person like you?
We are all the boss of us. What kind of a boss are you?
