What is the worst trait a boss/supervisor can have?


As a supervisor myself, I find the worst trait I have is lack of sympathy. I try to care about my staff members problems, but sometimes I don't because I feel they over-exaggerated the situation. What do you feel is the worst trait a boss or supervisor can have?

    I find I can be guilty of this from time to time. I used to be really bad about it, but I have improved and offer praise when it's deserved. I find fake praise or praising "just because" can be disastrous as well.

    It can be very hard to remain partial, as much as you try. Supervisors can have favorite employees based on the work they do. But most good supervisors try to be fair. As far as they can, at least.

    That's a good point. I've had supervisors who wouldn't listen before, or who would easily get offended by suggestions made. Those situations taught me how I shouldn't act when I became a supervisor.
