Usually I leave politics out...
Anita Bruzzese, Gannett, writes about what makes a good leader. Recently on Twitter, people chimed in on what makes a good boss.
A good boss treats employees with respect and works as hard as anyone else.
A good boss listens.
A good boss mentors employees.
A good boss also opens doors--and does not get upset if employees walk through.
A good boss tells the truth when employees need to hear it.
He or she keeps the glory days of the past in the past, looks foward.
Doesn't lead through fear.
I can't help seeing that on a national level, the "boss" is detached, does not want to know things so he can say he didn't know them, has people around who all think alike so he doesn't even have to say his wishes out loud, does not listen to anything even slightly critical, punishes and creates fear, works very short days, and dines out on past accomplishments constantly.
Just an observation.
