National Boss Day on October 16th
National Boss Day originated back in 1958 and since then we’ve been given the perfect opportunity to tell our boss exactly what we think of him/her.
What Makes a Good Boss?

A good boss should be a communicator, motivator, leader, compassionate, honest, humble, approachable and fair. They should recognize that the approach to keeping each employee motivated is different. They should know how to cultivate a positive work environment and understand what actions to take in a stressful atmosphere to maintain a good culture. Happy and healthy staff equals productive staff and that should be no mystery.
All too often, a boss has been put in this position with either no proper training on the “good boss fundamentals” or doesn’t innately possess many (or any) of the above qualities or characteristics. NO BUENO!
Someone to Cheer on National Boss Day (and Everyday)
I am one of the fortunate ones who is blessed with a superstar, life-changing, amazingly patient, remarkably inspiring, and unbelievably understanding boss. She can identify someone’s strength and gently nudge them in the right direction. She’ll see you for you are without judgment and believes in you.
I know I’m not alone in this sentiment when I say, she’s breathed life into so many of us and ignited that spark we needed to take our passions and visions to the next step. Thanks to her, I’m at this stage of writing this blog post and have two published books!
Thank Your Boss Everyday
