    What changes should I bring in my attitude on being appointed as the boss?

    I have recently been chosen as the boss of a particular branch of the company. The company expects a lot from me. I am bit nervous but determined. So I want to know what are the changes that I should bring in my attitude on being appointed as the boss. Please suggest.

    First and foremost thing you must bring in your attitude is punctuality, if you are punctual employees under you will be automatically punctual.
    Be clear and specific about things when you are delivering any message in front of employees.
    You need to be confident but not overconfident.
    If any problem arises ask suggestions from your employees also and appreciate them when they come up with good solutions this boosts confidence and motivates employees to give there best.
    Don't try to be over friendly with employees while working as this effects discipline, that is they should always have in there minds that you are the boss and they will have to follow the orders.
    While taking any decision be cool and calm.

    Hi Dear,

    First of all, a hearty congratulations for being appointed as the boss.

    As you have mentioned above that you are a bit nervous but determined. Let me tell you nervousness at times is very helpful in making a person more responsible and it's determination combined with nervousness will definitely help you to deliver the best.

    Yet, you need to focus on a couple of things which would not only help you in becoming a good leader but also will make your official journey more joyful.

    1) First of all, know your job ie you should be very clear in your mind about the work that you have to do and get done by your peer groups.

    2) Now, focusing on attitude, I believe that a good boss need not pretend to be Hitler or Mussolini, rather be a very cool and friendly person with a sense of humour of course. However, do not forget in your mind that you are the boss and at the end of the day, you have to get the work done, so be firm (assertive but not aggressive) when talking about completion of work.

    3) Lastly, have empathy for your teammates, understand them and their requirements (areas of improvements) and motivate them to groom their skills so that even they could climb the ladder of success and get a timely growth.

    Thanks,
    Ritz

    Dear Aspirant,

    Congratulations for getting chosen to be a boss for a particular section.In order to prove yourself a good boss,you should take care of your dress,you should be punctual in your duty,be honest,efficient & well known about all your employees.A boss is a person who drives other employees.You should have guardianship nature for the employees working under you.It seems you should first try to convince your employees to be a good employee by being an obedient,honest,efficient,cooperative to others.If they don't care to you,you should take some action by issuing memo.You should conduct periodical meeting with the employees & review their works.Appreciate those who work well & give another opportunity to work well to those who are not up to marks.Help the needy one.

    Like wise you can bring changes in your section.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Being the boss is not an easy task.You have to maintain such a personality which everyone will envy and set you as a good example.When you are the boss,you have to look after a the responsibility of the entire staffs working under you.So you have to be a watch dog to look after the working of your entire branch,Take care of the short comings.You have to make it a point that you should be approachable to your employees subordinate to you.The bridge between you and other employees should be smooth.Otherwise working together will be difficult task.At the same time,your behaviour should not be such lenient that some people take unnecessary advantage of it.

    Hi,

    Congratulations for getting promoted to boss in your company.

    You must bring following changes in your attitude-

    *self confidence- this is very important , if you will be nervous then you will not be obeyed but self confidence will bring confidence in you by your employees also.

    *Punctuality- you must be regular to your work and reach office on time.Thus employees will set you as an example for your punctuality.

    *Boss-attitude- you must have a bit boss like attitude which would prevent very frank behavior of the employees towards you. But you must be polite to them.

    *Communication- Your communication skills will reflect your personality. While assigning work to employees be straight and clear with your words.

    *Humuor- you must sometimes act humorous to make the office environment calm and cool out of stress.Do not panic in any situation .

    *Justice- Be fair and just in your judgement while taking any decision.

    Good luck

    First of all you need to be a commanding person like, whom everybody followsbecause if you are a boss then you need to answer for the mistakes and you will be awarded for the good work.
    So if you like to be a boss then then you should act like a boss.
    You should do some politics if you like to survive as a boss because without politics nothing is possible to handle in the organisation.
    You need to good with the employees in front of them and screw the team leaders for the mistakes so that they screw the assosiates, it is a story of every organisation.
    When i was working in hotel then i saw that our generalmanager attitude was good with us in front of us but from behind he gives order to the managers to punish the employees so that they should be under controlled.
    You need to play the games in your mind to handle the position because you are the responsible for every thing in a huge extent.
    If you not make yourself like that then you need to quit that position.
    There are many of the person who do backbiting so you need to make your behaviour good with everybody so that whatever any employee is saying about you should be informed to you by other employee because if you dont know what the employees are thinking about you then it will be difficult for you to understand.
    you need to find the mistakes evry morning when you enters the organisation so that they should be involved in work every time.

    First of all I would like to congratulate you for the being appointed as the new boss.It reveals your past performance and the caliber that you have and put up at the professional arena.It reflects the trust and faith of the employer on you.You should also respect the decision of the employer and give no source of complaint to him/her.You can show your respect not only through your words but also your actions and it is the actions which will count more than your words.Hence you should aim at working perfectly and efficiently at the position allotted to you and leave no stone unturned to achieve success in this new journey.

    It is quite admirable that you want to make all the possible changes within you if needed.This is an attitude of a true professional and I would like to appreciate it.Firstly you must remember that it is because of the present attitude and your work that you have been given such a high profile and respectable position.It is the trust of the higher authority that you will do justice with the decision and the new position that has been allotted to you.

    As a boss,you do not need to bring the widespread changes in your attitude rather you have to modify some thought process and a bit of attitude.You have to get strong a bit in administrative behaviour.You should be confident enough regarding your goals and your actions.You should try to make your thought process much faster.You should be strict against acts against the company's interests but at the same time should be cooperative and helpful enough.You should be able to motivate your subs and juniors.It is your duty to boost the confidence if anyone is lagging in their work.Impartiality is the main thing that you should develop.And lastly,you should be honest and sincere towards your duty.
