Some of the Best Advice Given by Bosses

Some of the most inspirational leaders and bosses give the best advice – one that we often take for granted. Being the boss is often challenging but taking on the role of the boss allows them to motivate, inspire and support their peers. On this Boss’s Day, we would like to take a moment to appreciate and thank all our managers and supervisors for all that they do and for constantly giving us the best advice even though we might not acknowledge it at the time.

Let’s go back to the start. Originating in 1958 by Patricia Bays Haroski, Boss’s Day was designated on October 16 with hopes to improve the relationship between employees and supervisors and show appreciation for her boss and other bosses. October 16 was a special day as it was Patricia’s father’s birthday, someone who she felt was an exemplary boss. It was in 1962 that Illinois Governor Otto Kerner backed Haroski’s registration and officially proclaimed the day Boss’s Day.

In honor of all the bosses out there, we have gathered some of the best advice from our very own coworkers at Roth Staffing given by their bosses.

Let’s get inspired:

“If something goes wrong, or not according to plan, let me know as soon as possible and we will figure out a solution. There is always a solution.”

“Mistakes happen. Challenges arise. Focus on finding a solution rather than dwelling on the problem and you’ll be okay every time.”

“Don’t imitate other leaders. Own who you are, what you stand for, and what makes you unique. Don’t try to be anyone else but yourself.”

“If you know how to make something better, don’t wait for approval… you may be waiting forever and miss your chance to create a remarkable experience for someone. Ask for forgiveness if you were wrong and made a mistake. The intention of your action is what was important.”

“New growth can take a minute. When you’re learning something new or trying to reach a new height, be patient with yourself in the process. Things we’re not comfortable with take longer and can set you back if you do not persevere through the discomfort. Every day, work on nurturing your growth, and trust that even when you don’t see your progress, progress is being made with every step you take. Over time momentum builds, and your results will be exponential!”

Three cheers for all the hardworking bosses out there! Happy Boss’s Day!
