3 months into my new job and probation is finally over. A good boss brings out the potential in me and that goes for some other people too I guess. My first job and follow up by another 2, were a disaster. The job itself is enjoyable but the working atmosphere is ruined by these certain kind of people especially my direct boss.
My current job and the super boss lets me realise like black and white, day and night, why I felt like quitting my previous jobs so much without thinking twice and left me thinking for a good few months that I’m incapable of taking up stress or pressure or can’t even do the job well for that matter.
My boss has good qualities more than any average good boss. Knowing her have stopped me from wondering if there are any good bosses still left out there.
1. She listens.
Like she will really listen to the problems I’m having at work and seriously think of ways and possible solutions for me because I alone can’t solve them. As far as I remember, my second boss is a total crazy dude. He will not listen to any of his employee and will not analyse the problem to hold up on the work and will just basically blame everyone else saying they are inefficient and making excuses.
2. She wants me to ask her questions.
She always encourages me to ask her anything I might want to know or have any doubts about work and never get annoyed even for once.
3. She teaches me, like how a good teacher or lecturer would to a student.
She tells me all about her experiences, ups and downs and most importantly, how to approach, communicate and deal with different people because it seems like the most difficult task in everyday job.
4. She is considerate and kind.
How many bosses are are considerate of their subordinates? They will simply think they are paid to do the job so just do it. Well hey, I agree there are some employees too lazy to do even the tiniest of work, but there are extremely good ones out there too. It all depends on individual attitude.
5. She wants her subordinates to grow into better people (promoted with better salary too😅, that’s what she said.)
She tries her best to guide me and all her previous staffs under her. She will make the working environment into a place where I want to keep learning and discover new things everyday. I’m forever so grateful for having her as my direct boss.
For all my previous bad luck with bad bosses (reallyyyy bad bosses I tell you), I’m contented with what I have now. One just have to go through tough times to be able to appreciate the good times especially the people. It’s worth it. Yup, I said it out now.
