Finally, the ideal boss. The Great Boss is very well balanced and communicates effectively. He wants feedback from all employees and encourages even the introverts to be an active part of the company. He is a great motivator and people willingly follow his decisions because he’s an effortless leader. The Great Boss leads a positive work environment and wants you and your co-workers to succeed.
