The White Hat Boss

This boss needs to be seen as the good guy, the nice one, the one everyone likes. They hate negative emotions, ESPECIALLY when they are aimed at themselves. It means they frequently avoid confrontation, their feedback is too non-specific or indirect, and they constantly let people walk into pitfalls. They avoid hard conversations, and when something unpleasant is necessary, they focus more on making sure no one is mad at them than they do on acting in the team's best interest. Like this post?
