What type of Boss do you have?

There are three types of bosses:

  1. Remarkable bosses are well-attuned to the concerns and aspirations of others, blend both facts and people considerations in their decision-making, and have healthy egos focused on business success versus just getting their own selfish needs met.
  2. Perilous bosses, despite their intelligence, are chronically critical and dissatisfied, inconsistent in their management of others, and moody.
  3. Toxic bosses are tempestuous, have no concern about the impact of their behavior on others, and are totally ego centric.
