Everyone who manages wants to be thought of as a great boss. Being one doesn’t mean being an easy boss or not challenging your employees. It means being the kind of boss who knows how to get the best out of your people, keeping goal posts clear in their minds, and giving them the right support and feedback to get to those goals no matter what (or learn why they didn’t if things go wrong). Ultimately, if you want to be a true leader and not just a manager, it starts with helping your employees build good goals and giving them the right feedback along the way.
