Bosshole Effect Boss Rating System – Great Boss, Good Boss or Bad Boss?

Would you like to rate your boss using the Bosshole Rating System?

You probably spend more hours working than doing anything else while you are awake. Do you enjoy going to work Bad Boss Behavior, Poor Leadership skillseveryday? If not you may be working for a BossHole and be falling prey to the The BossHole Effect. By definition, a BossHole is someone who acts like an ass and who happens to have the positional authority to impact your life.

The BossHole Effect is the powerful capacity of a BossHole to suck the joy, energy, enthusiasm and greatness out of an organization. BossHoles don’t just inhabit businesses. They can ruin non-profits, schools, sports teams, youth groups, homeowner’s associations, church activities and just about any experience where a group of people gathers for a common purpose. BossHoles don’t even have to be the official boss to exert their influence. The best of the breed require no official management or supervisory title.

A BossHole wields devastating negative energy.

The toxic effect of a BossHole on an organization can be devastating. Jeanna Bryner summarized University of Florida research in an article, “Abused Workers Fight Back by Slacking Off,”  in Live Science on October 8, 2007.  This research demonstrated that workers with abusive bosses were five times more likely to slow down or make errors on purpose, six times more likely to hide from their boss, three times more likely to not give their best effort, and seven times more likely to falsely take sick leave.

A great boss inspires his/her team and creates an environment where workers can excel. A BossHole does the exact opposite. This Boss rating system will identify whether your boss is a great boss, good boss, partial BossHole, BossHole or Complete BossHole.
