But what's the difference between a good and a bad boss? Well, usually, the way they make their employees feel. Even though employers don't have to be liked by their employees, it is important to set up staff members for success and to support them in their work. According to The Balance Careers, those who repeatedly fail to do this will lose the respect of their employees and might even become disliked as people.

Bosses should be honest with themselves about this their skills and their confidence. If they're unsure of themselves , faking it is the worst way of going about it. employees will know, and they won't be willing to look to them for guidance. And the more they try to fool them, the bigger the resentment.

However, if a boss feels like they're in over their head, they can win the respect of their staff by confronting the shortcomings and making them a part of the solution. Seeking help from the employees who may have knowledge, experience, or insight that the bosses themselves lack.

This is the most accurate picture of all. Bad leaders really care for every shit instead of for the big turds.

Employees recognize when a boss is simply using them to make themselves look better or to further their own professional goals. They will be especially resentful if they are blamed for making their boss look bad. Everybody should have a role,and know that role. To put it simply, it should be about the department or the company as a whole meeting a goal rather than the leader taking them there. To regain the respect of employees, a boss has to make sure everyone's role is defined and that they all have an opportunity to share in the team's success.

And even the most humble managers can make an incorrect assessment of how much managing an employee needs. If they micromanage and nitpick their ideas and work, they will never tap into their discretionary energy or the best they have to offer.

Of course, this doesn't mean that employees in training, and employees who change their position or acquire new responsibilities are OK without guidance. But, if leaders aren't guiding them to lessen their own involvement, there's a problem. Micromanaging good employees is the easiest way to demotivate them.

I can never relate to these kind of memes/jokes because all I have to do when I'm not going to work is find a replacement. My boss never questions it.

I actually had a boss like that, "Only your left arm is broken. That means you can still read and sign off with your right hand. I'm sending you some files to look at."

I had a boss who asked the same...when I had been in a car accident. I also had had a bleeding incident at work and another boss told me, I'll go buy you clothes what size are you? That way you won't have to go home. I have heavy menstrual bleeding and had an accident that literally ran down my pant leg, I looked like i had been stabbed. But they really needed me there.

This is too real for me. I got into a car accident while on the way to work (I ran off the road. No other cars involved). This was before cellphones and I had to walk two miles to use a phone. I called a tow-truck, then I called my grandpa to take me to the ER, then I called my boss to let her know I wouldn't be coming in. She said she would fire me if I didn't come in. I went in, passed out while unloading a truck, then spent two days in the hospital. I got fired for leaving work and not coming in for two days.

when i just started working as a cleaner, one day I was a bit late done with work. I was still in the building, but already had my coat on when someone came running to me in panic: a guest threw up and no one wanted to clean it up. I could have said "nope I'm gone" but didnt, and found a whole circle of people around the mess, and the poor woman sick as a dog and crying of shame. I was so pissed off (not at her) I cleaned it up rapidly without blinking an eye while everyone just stared. The next week, xmas gifts were given out, and I got an envelope with a 150 euro gift voucher in it. The person who handed me the envelop told me this was the first time ever that the cleaning woman got a voucher too. Apparently I impressed everyone with cleaning up someones puke in my own time, without complaining or blinking an eye :-D

This legit happened to me. Heavy downpour that flooded the parking lot outside my apartment,, the water had risen over all the cars and was on the porch coming through the doorway and flooding the downstairs apartments. I called my boss and told him what was going on. He said "you can't walk?" I said "it's at least 6 ft of water and I'm 5'4 and I'm not swimming to work for $7/hour."
