Some bosses are really great, or even patient and kind. But there's a whole higher strata of bosses, who literally make the people around them better while creating opportunities for them that wouldn't otherwise exist.
Sydney Finkelstein, professor of management at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College and an executive coach, calls them "superbosses."
“Maybe I’m an optimist, but I think anyone could become a superboss.”
Finkelstein, who recently wrote Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent (Portfolio, 2016), explains the huge benefits of working for one of these people, and the ways these bosses can transform entire industries.
