WHAT IS THE BOSS SUPERPOWER ABOUT?

The Boss SuperPower is a fun personality profile with a serious side. It's based on a validated psychometric model. The aim is to provide meaningful insight in an entertaining way. If you have not found out your own Boss SuperPower, you can do that here. The mission of Manager Foundation is to make work a better place by improving self-awareness, communication and relationships. The Boss SuperPower profile shows bosses what they are good at, potential problem tendencies and how employees and bosses can work better together.

Note: The psychometric model displays tendencies and preferences. People are complex and vary. Obviously there will be some variation according to day, circumstance and relationship. (Most people behave differently to their mother and employees). Pro-tip: Bosses if you feel that any of this does not accurately describe you, use this as an opportunity to open a dialogue with your staff about what your preferences are.

Secondary Power: Action: As a boss, there's no time for napping on your team or wasting time over analyzing. Action is your middle name. You have already beaten everyone else before lunchtime.

Tertiary Power: Challenge: There is no question that when you're in charge, you have a firm hand on the wheel. You're not afraid to set your own course and sail new seas alone.

HELP YOUR COLLEAGUES UNDERSTAND YOU BY SHARING THIS WITH THEM

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Your boss has shared this with you as a method to develop a better working relationship and a better workplace. 

  • Employees who don't understand how their boss works and what preferences their boss has end up having difficulties in the workplace. Such as: Producing the wrong results, poor relationships and weak communications. This why many employees work hard but end up stuck because they are working on the wrong things in the wrong way.
  • You can improve your job by understanding your boss's strengths, preferences and communication style. This will enable you to meet more of your boss's needs with less effort and improve your relationship with your boss.

TIPS FOR WORKING BETTER WITH A BOSS WHO IS DRIVEN BY RESULTS:

  • When communicating with your boss be brief and get directly to the point. Don't ramble or repeat yourself,
  • Focus on tangible results. Tell your boss WHAT you have accomplished but don't bore them with the details of HOW you did it,
  • Focus on business and not social topics,
  • Manage your time effectively to meet deadlines and complete tasks to high standards,
  • Be confident and focus on problem-solving,
  • Make suggestions about how to achieve goals and not why they won't work,
  • Don't focus too much on problems, negatives or small details,
  • Don't make generalizations or statements without support.
