The best boss I ever worked for was a woman and she was very passionate about her work. She cared for her people and was an effective communicator. She was truly a mentor and a role model working to ensure that we succeeded. She gave credit where credit was due but also took the heat when things went wrong. She helped us to grow and improve in all areas. She also believed it was very important to have fun amid all the chaos and craziness that was going on in our office. We always had fun!
