|Sensible, respectful, and understanding: These are the traits associates say they look for and admire in a boss. So does it matter whether the boss is male or female? Desirable attributes, such as assertiveness or nurturing, aren’t gender-specific, even though they tend to be labeled as masculine or feminine. Bottom line: If you want to be the best boss, or work for the best, put stereotypes aside and start aggressively cultivating your own work character.|
