Having delve into the business world? You might had faced few bosses who are sometimes being too relaxed and sometimes being too strict? or bosses who didn't care what are you doing as long the job is done..each of them carries different personalities and this can be explained as in this article. As for me, I quite agree about this article based on my experiences working in few organizations.
The Old-Timer Boss
This type of boss has been in the industry for quite some time and
really knows what it takes to be in the business. He/she almost at the
peak of his/her career. The good thing about him/her is they are easy
going especially if close to retirement. The not so good part is we will
easily get bored of his/her thousands of tales. When you are dealing
with this type of boss, maintain strong patience, keep on smiling as
though you are listening and being with him, instead take that precious
time dreaming of something else and plan your future undertaking or
maybe dream of your wife, husband, kids, girlfriend or boyfriend.
The Tyrant Boss
This type of boss thinks that empowerment means allowing management
to give instruction. The normally have that thought that they are the
one alone controller of the organization. The good thing about this boss
is they have no problem in making decision, but the not so good part
is, the decision made is often wrong. This type of boss will not listen
much of what you want to give or suggest, so the best thing when dealing
of such boss, keep quiet and just do your job.
The Pen Pusher Boss
This type of boss believes that the world would fall apart if there
are no rules and regulations. The good thing about this boss is that
he/she is highly expected and this makes you easier to manipulate. The
not so good part is that you will not be able to show your fullest
creativity. When you are with this kind of boss, keep all actions within
the framework of what is been done in the history. And document
everything and share it with everyone.
The Over Rated Boss
This type of boss is normally got over-promoted and has no thought of
what to do next. This type of boss normally gets others to make
decision and tend to agrees with it without much solid ground over it.
The good thing about this boss is he/she will probably get downgraded or
fired soon and will eventually create an opportunity for you. The not
so good thing is he/she will remain in his/her place if you assist
him/her out too much. If dealing with such boss, the best thing to do is
do your own job and prepare your project proposal in advance, try to
leap him/her to get approval of it. Sooner or later he/she will realize
how ‘not so good’ him/her and will eventually give you way.
The Futurist Boss
This type of boss generates a reality-distortion ground that
resulting people consider the doubtful and usually originated in
high-tech and biotech surroundings. The good thing of him/her is he/she
can be highly inspirational, especially if we have got founder’s stock.
The not so good thing is shouting at people who are not with him/her. If
you have this type of boss, definitely you will not have a life. If you
are ready to commit your life for it, this is the best boss for you.
The Mountaineer Boss
This type of boss often desperately wants to get to the top. The good
think about him/her is that you may have the opportunity to get
promoted when he is upgraded. The not so good is that you are nothing
less than being a rung on his hierarchy to triumph. You should not try
to make him look bad, or else… Try to make sure that the boss knows you
understand your role in making him look good.
The Socialist Boss
This type of boss thinks of the corporate environment as a community
of stakeholders. They often see things at non-profits way and will also
aim for healthcare everywhere. The good thing about this boss is that
they are pleasant and friendly. The not so good thing is that they will
try to avoid committing or making decision that might create conflicts.
This type of boss may become grouchy when under pressure. In dealing
with such boss, you have to build peace & harmony. Make sure
everyone is with you before making any step and the main criteria is
always be good to him/her.
The Propeller-head Boss
This type of Boss used to be a top performer in engineering sector.
He/she prefers to interact via email and try to avoid face to face.
He/she will have that thought that others are not as good as him/her or
can be considered as an idiot. This type of boss will try to relate
everything with technological environment. The tips is become and expert
in high complicated technology and show to him/her that you are in the
same direction with him/her.
The Chopper Boss
This type of boss is normally hired to downsize your organization.
They will try to fire or make them resign as much as possible, as soon
as possible. There is nothing much good thing for employee but for the
company, who knows. The not so good thing is that this type of boss is
really good of what he is hired to do. So, when dealing with this type
of boss, the best thing that you should do is start updating your resume
as chances of you being out is very high.
The Hero of the Day Boss
This type of Boss is so capable and conversant, yet easy to work
with. They will try to help staff to learn and grow an actually have
thought that manager is exist to guide the staff to be successful. But,
this type of boss normally gets easily promoted and will leave
you very soon. The best thing to do when dealing with this type of boss
is enjoy it while you can and try to prove that you are actually have
that same or almost same quality that he/she posses, and pray that
he/she bring you along when he/she gets better job or promotion.
