Good bosses, first and foremost, put the person in a position to do a good job, i.e. win. Nobody really wants to do a bad job. That means providing the right tools, enough time, and understanding what motivates each person. #7 sort of covers that. For me, #3 and #4 was important. My last CIO put into my review “Bill is easy to work with, once I figured out how.” A good boss knows how with everyone. I needed to know why the assignment was important to the business. I did not care who asked for it. So, I would add #8 — keeps people informed on a personal level.
