A bad Job with a Good Boss is better than a good job with bad boss.

A good boss in an ordinary company will protect you and support you.

A bad boss in a good company will nullify and demoralize you.

A good boss in a good company will unseal your potential.


Don’t pick a job. Pick a Boss.

Your first boss is the biggest factor in your career success.

A boss who doesn’t trust you won’t give you opportunities to grow….

This is difficult because the system we use to find meaningful work is built to work the other way around. You are selected by the boss. More often than not, you only talk to your boss during the interview process, which is a poor predictor of what he / she is actually going to be like.

By focusing on who your boss will be above most other criteria (e.g. total satisfaction, responsibility, advancement opportunities, location) changes how you pursue jobs and how happy you’ll be once you select one.

So, how are you going to find a good boss? First and foremost, understand yourself. Have you established your personal intention? If so, what is your ambition statement (what you need to achieve in the next 3 – 5 years)? By determining a clear path for what you want to achieve, you can conduct a gap analysis of your skills and better determine how a particular boss can coach and mentor you to your goals.

Secondly, picking a tremendous boss demands that you have a strong network. By cultivating relationships with professionals in your field, you can share notes about the bosses you’ve worked for or heard about. It takes time and research, but knowing who the good managers are and looking for them is probably the best predictor of a prosperous career.

Last but not least, conduct informational interviews with potential bosses before you actually have a chance to work with them. By treating him or her for coffee or lunch, learn more about what makes him or her tick. You can build a relationship and see how you can generate value for him or her. You will also learn how you can be supported by a person as you achieve your life’s goal.

From there, the career and life of your dreams will evolve organically.
