On Being a Great Boss

This is a great illustration… of several things.

First, great bosses have specific traits and behaviours.

Second, most of these traits and behaviours can and should be cultivated with intent and purpose.

Third, the traits and behaviours we (read Western cultures) value may not be all that helpful in another context. These personality traits are admirable, but in another culture and another context, some of them can actually hinder success in leadership and in the workplace.

A REALLY great boss is mindful of both context and culture and cultivates personality traits conducive to success and influence in the current environment.
