- If your boss is always available to answer your queries
You know you have a great immediate higher-up if what it is that is troubling you, you are able to discuss it with him/her, you have a boss that not many have. Cherish his company and appreciate his efforts to keep your life healthy.
- If you boss is anything but bossy
Being bossy sometimes comes with being a boss, arguably. One could contend that the higher-up needs to dictate a times to get things done but if he acknowledges his weak moments, may be at the work place, may be on the telephone with you, probably discussing a deadline, you should know he is better than many.
- If your higher-up has no issues guiding
There can be a lot of people who either cannot or would not take time out to guide the team to follow a path that is good for each individual.
If he guides you for your career graph beyond your official discussions, appreciate him.
- If your boss feels for you when you are over-worked
If your boss maintains a personal relationship with you and knows when you are over-worked, appreciate him.
An ideal higher-up should know his team members, a little bit at least, on personal level supplement the working relationship and add to the work environment.
