At some point in our lives, we’ve all had The Boss From Hell: the control freak, the personal-email snoop, the guy or gal who times your bathroom breaks and deducts the time you spend at the water cooler from your paycheck.
But what about the other kind of boss? The kind who actually treats you like a real human being instead of warm body?
Truly exemplary bosses are few and far between, but the good news is, like true love, they exist. And also like true love, a really remarkable boss might come your way once in a lifetime.

But rather the boss who, when the going gets tough, proves that they are worthy of their title of leader.
