Recently I was asked what I most needed from my boss. Not referring to my current job or current boss, just a general career question.
After much consideration I came to the conclusion that I only need one thing from my boss:
Clear the Path
Clear the path of any obstacles, thereby enabling me to do the job I was hired to do.
As a boss, a manager and business leader that’s what is most important – clear the path so your team can most effectively do their job. If you can’t do that, nothing else matters.
