Employee management.. which do you prefer?

June 24, 2008 12:11pm CST
In our working life, we go through the ordeal of dealing with different bosses most of the time. Each of them have their own traits and their own style of handling you and your group/department. Some methods may work and some may not. This is because employees are still individuals with different needs and abilities. Some wants to be the funny boss. Some have iron hands and are super strict. Some are lazy but friendly. Some are disciplinarians. And much more. Which would you think is a good method for your boss to implement on your group or for you as an individual? For managers, what would you think is the best method you've implemented so far or will be implementing?

I prefer a boss who gives constructive criticism. They'll tell you what you're doing wrong but in an advisory tone rather that a disciplinary one. I'd expect a boss to delegate tasks but to not mind getting their hands dirty and helping out when necessary.they need to have 'people skills' and remember how it feels to NOT be the boss.

That's good. Yeah, constructive criticism usually helps more employees figure out where they can improve on and in in a nice manner by the manager. People skills are definitely a must when managing people.
