Great bosses change us for the better. They see more in us than we see in ourselves, and they help us learn to see it too. They dream big and show us all the great things we can accomplish.

Outstanding leadership can be a difficult thing to pin down and understand. You know a great leader when you’re working for one, but even they can have a hard time explaining the specifics of what they do that makes their leadership so effective.

Great bosses believe in their people, which drives them to create an environment where people thrive. Today’s most-exceptional bosses do the following.

1. Communication 

While communication is key to any relationship, the same goes for employer-employee relationships. Successful bosses ensure they have an open door of communication between themselves, employees, and clients. Not only do they make sure they offer a welcoming environment to encourage work-related communication, but they also make sure they supply their employees with the necessary tools for proper communication.

2. Constant Support

An exceptional boss provides their employees with immense support in trying times. Previously, a boss’s leading role was to give orders and to make sure they were being fulfilled. However, great bosses are now becoming coaches, colleagues, and cheerleaders for the employees they support rather than prison wardens or executioners. Great leaders allow their employees to make mistakes or to disagree with the status quo with no fear of retribution or judgment.

3. Maintain Individuality 

Average bosses lump people together, trying to motivate, reward, and teach everyone in the same way. Exceptional bosses treat people as individuals, respecting that everyone has their motivation and style of learning.

4. Encourage Career Development 

Every successful boss knows that having the right employees in place with the best skills, knowledge, and experience will help their business grow, so they offer some ways for employees to develop their careers.

An excellent boss will encourage employees to take the initiative to gain more knowledge and skills that will help them grow in their position and the company.

5. Lead By Example 

Leading by example is a true characteristic of a successful boss. Bosses who cannot only give out directions but also set an example of how employees should work in the office will lead a much more productive group of individuals.

6. Open To Change

Ordinary bosses operate by the motto, “This is the way we’ve always done it.” They believe that change is unnecessary and causes more harm than good. Exceptional bosses see change as an opportunity for improvement. They constantly adapt their approach and embrace change to stay ahead of the curve.

8. They Accept Failure
