“You never stop learning how to be a great boss,” or do you think a boss is born? We have seen the great leaders and entrepreneurs on the globe, some are most hated by staff while the others seem to achieve it easy to be a loved boss. Being a good boss takes more than being friend.
“You never stop learning how to be a great boss,” according to a flowchart infographic from Headway Capital. But having the responsibility of a boss can also be a great challenge.

Make your decision that’s more important than getting lots of work done or supporting your team to work well.
