Here are some great words

that all bosses

should make sure they use





Good morning

How are you?

Great job!

Thank you.


I have complete confidence in you.

What do you need from me?  How can I be of greater support?

What’s getting in your way?

Here’s an example:

What’s on your plate right now?

Here’s my feedback:

Don’t hesitate to ask.

What questions do you have?

What do you think?

Here’s what I am trying to achieve:

How’s your family/dog/new car?  (acknowledging life out of work)

Are you enjoying your work?  Enough challenge?

Keep me in the loop.

Tell me about your week.

Ha Ha (laughter

What are your dreams?  Goals?



Failure is not an option.

I’ll do it myself.

Don’t bring me any bad news.

You’re lucky to work here.
