Think about the best and worst bosses you’ve had in your career. What did they do to earn those titles?
You probably knew that your best bosses were committed to your success. When someone believes in you, gives you opportunities to grow, invests in you, and has your back, you’re motivated to give them (and their organizations) everything you’ve got to help them succeed.
Bosses who only care about using you for they’re own purposes aren’t likely on your “top bosses” list. And I’m guessing they didn’t get your best performance either.
Those best bosses don’t (or shouldn’t) earn that title just by generating warm fuzzies. They challenge us, stretch us, and support us to achieve our full potential.
Healthy organizations start with healthy leaders. Healthy leaders know they need objective input to keep their own biases in check. enLumen Leadership Services is passionate about helping leaders see their own situation clearly.
In his book, The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else In Business, Patrick Lencioni states that “An organization has integrity – is healthy – when it is whole, consistent, and complete, that is, when its management, operations, strategy, and culture fit together and make sense.”
