How do you answer to the boss?
- Do you create expectations in advance beyond the the boss's calendar to be ready for answers?
- Do you challenge the boss by asking hard questions?
- Are you someone who does exactly what the boss says?
- Do you anticipate in advance what the boss will ask of you?
- Do you tell the boss what your best choice is among all the available options?
- Do your co-workers and bosses ask you difficult questions?
- If so, do you give them support or say: "Get lost"?
- Have you created a totally new way to do things, something no one has ever seen or done?
- Do you seek out the boss when you make an error or mistake?
- Do you frequently often do you push, encourage and lead your co-workers to do ever better work?
- Will next month be one the boss will celebrate because you are on the team?
- Do you insist that your co-workers challenge, push and encourage you?
- Do you appreciate the boss when he/she gives feedback which contradicts your opinion?
- Do you thank the boss?
