If I were a boss...

I would want my employees to be happy. Of course, we all have our days when we don’t feel like coming into the office but it’s a bad sign to feel like that every single day.

I would treat my employees with trust and respect. I’ve found that bosses and managers so easily forget that their employees are also human. How can you expect greatness from your employees if you treat them like crap?

I would get to know my employees on a personal level. It’s actually pathetic not knowing the little things about your employees. Once you understand the type of people you’re working with, you’ll know how to communicate with them on all levels.

I would insist on having regular team-building activities. This is a great opportunity for fellow employees to get to know each other better, which will ultimately improve their work relationships. I think being happy and comfortable in the workplace is so important. Life isn’t all about deadlines and how much profit can be made.

I would instil a relaxed atmosphere in the office. We’re not inmates so why have a stiff and strict environment? Employees on all levels should feel comfortable voicing their opinions in the workplace. I want everyone to feel that their contributions to anything are valuable. Unnecessary pressure in the workplace is stupid. Why stress your employees out for no reason? A creative atmosphere is the best space to be in.


  1. Very well said. These are such important issues in the workplace that most bosses just don't get right. You go forth and do these things, you'll be a great boss.

  2. Its these simple things that can make a difference between a good business and a great business. If emloyers just took a little time focusing on their employees, they always be happy to be where they are.

  3. You have excellent communication skills and a pure heart and I believe that you will make a great boss someday.
