12 beliefs of best bosses

Good Boss, Bad Boss author Bob Sutton writes:  "I've come to conclude that all the technique and behavior coaching in the world won't make a boss great if that boss doesn't also have a certain mindset."  Of Sutton's 12 key beliefs held by the best bosses, two of my favorite are:
  • "I strive to be confident enough to convince people that I am in charge, but humble enough to realize that I am often going to be wrong."
  • "My job is to serve as a human shield, to protect my people from external intrusions, distractions, and idiocy of every stripe — and to avoid imposing my own idiocy on them as well."
