Bosses need and expect a lot.
- Finance clarity
- Ability to consistently turn ideas into profit
- That you can give boss confidence that his interests are being cared for
- Efficient use of words
- Make understanding easy for boss to achieve
- Understand how to give respect and deference
And these are just to name a few.
