Not very easy to find–but such people can clearly visualise where the organisation can travel to and have the competence to make it happen. If you are not the “hard working, innovative type”, quickly look for another job. Even for the competent you have to learn to hold his/ her attention long enough to understand your ideas. He or she is your biggest and constant resource to be able to accomplish your tasks. Accept him/her and do your best. Bosses will surprise you by how much they want you to succeed – remember one is working for the organisation through them. Get to know your boss well. Connecting and conversations are important, so some effort needs to be made to find out interests, problems and background. Remember when the boss does well, you do too (in most cases).
