Bosses' 10 biggest sins

Survey finds that managers who take the buddy-buddy approach and micromanage are top offenders.
By Jeanne Sahadi, senior writer

  • Tries too hard to be everyone's friend
  • Micromanages
  • Ignores conflict
  • Arrogant
  • Wishy-washy
  • Impulsive
  • Unable to delegate
  • Impatient
  • Stubborn
  • Unprofessional

Then emphasize how many of the traits on the surveyed employees' "wish" list that your boss does possess:

  • Trust in one's employees
  • Honesty/authenticity
  • Great team-building skills
  • Effective coaching skills
  • The ability to say "no"
  • A broader perspective
  • Patience
  • Decision-making skills

If your manager is a woman, skip the part about how 70 percent of respondents between the ages of 34 and 45 said they'd prefer to work for a man.

If your manager is a man, breeze right by the fact that more male bosses than female bosses were criticized for having a lack of leadership skills.

And if your manager is younger than you, best not to bring up the survey's finding that workers 45 and older would prefer to work for a manager their age, even though close to half of them in reality have a younger boss.

Then, just to wrap-up this selective love fest with a nice ribbon, wish your manager a happy National Boss Day -- and try not to let slip your bewilderment that every week there seems to be another loopy "national day" for something.
