How To Be A Boss

Updated on May 10, 2018

Becoming a boss, manager, higher power in a business can take some work. Years of dedication and a great work ethic can help greatly when wanting to move up in any company you have set your foot into. Believe it or not however the boss has many responsibilities ranging from a few to many, somewhat depending on what kind of stuff the company needs done. From ordering needed materials to keeping your folks in line it is all about how lead. Leadership takes some guts. From dealing with unruly customers to complicated details of a project the boss has to keep everything in order.

The Big Boss has a job to make the store, company, corporation and all of the above to be the absolute best it can possibly be. With vigor, brains and a great work ethic that's what they use in order to achieve this.

As a boss you need to show leadership, compassion, knowledge and a bit of perseverance. As a boss it is your job to make sure things can go as smoothly as possible, that your workers are doing their stuff as efficiently as possible. A boss has many jobs.

They must keep their area clean and running well, it is also a job to try and make it a comfortable work environment for their employees. One of the most important tasks as said previously is to try and keep their workers going efficiently, drama and problems at the workplace can drop work done by a ton. A boss must be a mediator between folks, if a problem is to arise they must stand and try to help solve it.

There is honestly many things a boss can do, it is a leadership role and therefore those who get put into the position are put at a higher standard then a normal employee would be. They hold the power to either destroy the company or bring to greater heights, the same could said for employees. The boss can control whether or not they move up in the world.

I personally don't know why some bosses tend to be in a bad mood all the time, maybe it is something at home or just the stress of the job gets to them. Either way an angry boss tends to destroy the environment inside the work place. A yell here or a something there just leads to more bad moods, as they say one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch. Same goes for the workplace, a boss or other employee gets in a bad mood then everyone can get in a bad mood then it's just an entirety of madness.

As a boss you should be the most levelheaded of the group, not to say that tempers can go flying even in the best of people but sometimes those in a position of power who lets emotions or personal feelings get in the way can do some pretty nasty things. Like lying saying someone said they quit when they didn't and you just wanna fire them.

It iss no secret that there can be some people who will use their position to hurt and basically destroy other, its sad and quite disgusting.

The ideal boss for many would more then likely be someone who you can work for but still grab a beer with,though many would say being friends with your boss probably isn't the best idea. You wouldn't want a boss so lax where they don't even care if you show up to work but also one where they yell at you for every tiny thing, like breathing and needing to use the restroom.

Bosses are set at a higher level then normal employees, they have spent many days working hard and doing their best to move up so they are somewhat made to stay at that level. Hitting Boss Status means you are now more then ever expected to do great.

In anything job related things can get stressful, deadlines or constant barking from your superiors can make anyone lose their cool. But as a boss it is the persons job to make sure things go smoothly.

A boss shouldn't be a liar, manipulator and outright bad person for the job. You shouldn't bring home problems to work if it will cause issues, you should not mistreat people just because you are having a bad day, gotta stay strong in the face of adversity.
