Here's what you should be asking yourself to determine if you're a good boss.
Are you a good boss?
How do you evaluate your own performance as a boss? Sure, you might hire consultants to give feedback on how to grow the practice, but you could also be asking them to interview staff to discover areas where you could improve. A third party might be able to observe interactions with your staff more subjectively then you could evaluate yourself.
And what if employees were able to assess their boss? As an employer, you should stay open to honest criticisms and your employees shouldn’t fear retribution for speaking out.
To critique your own job performance, you should be asking yourself these questions:
There are so many things to consider when you’re the boss. But it’s important to remember that it is difficult to get loyalty from staff who are scared, stressed, and feel that they aren’t valued. If you want your business to be successful, make sure your employees are happy. Take a look at yourself as the boss and decide if you are serious about your own growth and development as a professional. Then, do something to make sure you are creating the work environment you always envisioned.
