For this Friday’s installment of Ask Lisa, I am going to fulfill a request for a poem about Boss’s Day (no kidding, people are looking for this stuff!). Boss’s Day is next Saturday, October 16th.
I also want to thank Curt Rosengren over at the Occupational Adventure and Heath Row from the Fast Company blog for referring to and linking to my boss’s day ebook and ecard product. In addition to 110 helpful tips, the ebook features 10 business poems!
A Great Boss
You communicate what I need to accomplish
Your expectations, and what being great looks like
This helps me succeed and my career flourish
And feeds my inner motivations and psyche.
Having you to talk to is important to me
Sometimes I just need to vent
It is comforting that you don´t get angry
When I complain with good intent.
It is nice to win, to succeed, to prevail
In the face of Gibraltar sized barriers
Thanks for ensuring we do not derail
On the way to becoming performance leaders.
A great boss knows all these things
And makes team success a top priority
You make a difference and improve work´s meaning
And for that I thank you whole heartedly!
