1. Give you opportunities to kill it.
If your boss wants you to rise to the occasion, first he needs to provide you with an occasion to rise to.
5. Take charge of meetings so they actually serve a purpose.
If you leave a meeting more confused than when you entered, your boss needs to take a page from Marcus’s playbook and set a clear agenda. Wishy-washy communication benefits no one.
6. Take control of workplace conflict.
When communication breaks down or personalities clash, the best bosses step in to keep the problem from spiraling out of control.
8. Help you foster a sense of purpose in your work.
Successful bosses — bosses like Marcus Lemonis — know that people do their best work when they feel like their work matters.
9. Establish clear metrics for success.
Feelings aren’t facts — or good for business. Managers who set clear, data-based goals give their employees the structure they need to succeed.
11. Remember you have a life outside of work.
The best bosses know that respect is a two-way street and treat their employees and partners like people, not automatons.
