Core beliefs of extraordinary bosses – Home – Doug Johnson’s Blue Skunk Blog

“It’s been so long since I’ve worked for a bad boss that I tend not to think a lot about what makes someone a good person for whom to work.  I do hear plenty of complaints from family members about their own supervisors, so bad bosses do exist somewhere.

My guess is that most of us have learned how to boss other people by experiencing being bossed ourselves – for good or for ill. (The term “boss” has such a perjorative slant – couldn’t we use supervisor, manager, team leader???.)

Anyway this online article caught my eye: 8 Core Beliefs of Extraordinary Bosses by Geoffrey James, Inc. April 23, 2012. While James is writing about the business world, these beliefs seem especially applicable to school library and technology departments. James’s words are in bold; mine aren’t.”
