Hallmarks of Great Bosses

Bob Sutton, Stanford University

Stanford professor and author Bob Sutton covers a number of hallmarks and strategies of smart, in-tune bosses.

His research reports this is particularly true for bosses managing creative teams and employees. In these situations, over-management can backfire, often stifling creativity and innovation.
