A good boss knows how to deal with his subordinates. He understands situations and circumstances. He is fair and just, a good example to imitate. He is a disciplinarian; otherwise, many of his subordinates will just take advantage of him.

The total personality of a person makes him a good boss. If his character is good, then he is a good boss. It's not easy to make a man. It takes time to develop a desirable character to make one's self a good boss. This could not be dictated. Sometimes, we say that a man is a born leader because it is innate in that man to have the character of a leader. Same is true with a good boss. A good boss knows and understands everything and knows what to do in any given situation. Not all highly educated people are good boss because it is the personality of the individual that makes him good or bad. A boss has subordinates and therefore he should know how to supervise and deal with his subordinates to the satisfaction of everybody for him to be considered as a good boss.

I have an ambition to become a boss someday. I also wish to have a good fellowship with my employees. I see the good leader as one who knows his people individually. I don't like those companies wherein everything is macromanaged (i.e. every department has a chief). When I'll be boss I will see to it that things will be micromanaged up to the minute details. My ideal boss is also the one who knows the potential of every employee in his company. I will see to it that if I'll be boss, I will supervise interviews/hirings of employees. If I hire a person, ever for a job such as a janitor, I will see to it that he has the potential to run the company. To summarize that, a good boss for me is the one who can rally his employees for the betterment of the company, has a good vision or foresight, and has passion for the company.
