Expectations are usually directed towards employees for a smooth running of business. But in every business, two-way works far better. the employees do their part, so should the boss. Here are ways to be a great boss:
Be on top of things all the time
Sometimes, all duties are handed over to the manager. The manager may take on the position of a CEO, running everything in the office. However, it shouldn’t be so. As the boss of your business, your supervisory role is also essential.
Know what goes on in your office
Most bosses are barely present at their offices. They mostly just take feedbacks from whoever is in charge and relax. As a boss, every activity in the office should be in your knowledge so that when things are good, you would be duly informed, if not, then actions can be taken more quickly.
Perform supervisory activities
The fact that you are the boss does not mean that all should be handed over to employees. Supervise every activity in your workplace by checking in on every part or department in your workplace, making sure everyone is partaking as required, as well as meting out missing duties.

Know your employees
Knowing your employees is essential for running a business. If you know your employees, it wouldn’t be difficult to know each and everyone’s capabilities, as well as who can be responsible for what. Knowing your employees helps in solving problems faster because since each is well familiar to you, there wouldn’t be a need for formalities when duties in cases of emergencies need to be meted out.
There is more to becoming a boss than just owning a business.
