There are a variety of television shows and movies that shine light on just how terrible a boss can be. But for many employees, terrible bosses are a very problematic and real part of everyday life.
Handling a bad boss can cause a diverse amount of mental and physical health issues. According to USA Today, a stunning 75 percent of working adults say dealing with their boss is the most stressful part of of their job. While the Journal of Business and Psychology reported workers’ health can be adversely affected by a negative psychological climate, which can lead to a slew of health-related problems, including heart disease and depression.
When it comes to dealing with a bad boss, the negative effects are apparent — but what makes a boss good? Some positive traits of a boss include an interest in teaching employees concrete skills and attempting to generate better working methods. It seems that an overall interest in creating a well-oiled work environment is the trait of a good boss.
Good or bad, bosses have a very large impact on the way a company functions. Your boss is likely to increase or decrease your productivity and even lay the tone for your work environment. This infographic by WorldWideLearn examines the impact of management on workers and the true worth of a boss.
