So you're the boss, which means that you set the tone of the office. As the big shot at the end of the hall, you control more than just your employees’ to-do lists—you also hold sway over everything from the agenda of meetings to the unofficial dress code.
Yes, a boss's impact can be all-encompassing. Case in point: According to Lynn Taylor, author of "Tame Your Terrible Office Tyrant," the average employee spends 19 hours per week worrying about a superior's words and actions—and six of those are weekend hours.
There are as many types of bosses as there are stars in the sky–from the my-way-or-the-highway tyrant to the eager-to-pacify pushover. Office situations on TV and in the movies show these familiar supervisors, too. While watching Michael Scott on a rerun of "The Office," who hasn't thought, “Geez, I had a dope like that for a boss a while back”?
