Hello and welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s prompt comes to us from the Education and Career category and the card says “The best boss you’ve ever worked for was so good because…”
Well, I’m going to have to say that the best boss I’ve ever worked for was so good because, and I’m going to use this as a group since it was while I was working in retail and I didn’t really have one single “boss”, they would be stern when they needed to to correct me or other workers, for the most part, but they also knew that to get people to want to work harder you need to make them proud of their work.
While I was in the retail sector, for the most part I actually enjoyed going to work. I liked helping people, and I liked recommending products to people. The managers were great in empowering us to do that most of the time. A few times though, corporate decisions made it harder for the managers to do this, but often times they would try to shield us as much as possible. It did help that we were one of the better performing stores in the region so we could say “We know what works here in this store, let us do our business.” and the regional manager would actually allow us to do it.
So there, what I have for what made my bosses when I worked retail the best bosses I’ve had.
