“If you are a boss, ask yourself: When you look back at how you’ve treated followers, peers, and superiors, in their eyes, will you have earned the right to be proud of yourself? Or will they believe that you ought to be ashamed of yourself and embarrassed by how you have trampled on others’ dignity day after day?”
Robert I. Sutton, Good Boss, Bad Boss: How to Be the Best... and Learn from the Worst

“Bosses shape how people spend their days and whether they experience joy or despair, perform well or badly, or are healthy or sick. Unfortunately, there are hoards of mediocre and downright rotten bosses out there, and big gaps between the best and the worst.”
Robert I. Sutton, Good Boss, Bad Boss: How to Be the Best... and Learn from the Worst
