What did you learn from the worst boss you ever had?

I am a believer that from every negative situation there is always something good to learn. Look forward to the discussion :)

Well, I learned that I never want to have a boss anymore. Which was one of many reasons that lead to my becoming an entrepreneur.

Every boss I've had was pretty poor for various reasons - obvious lack of integrity, good worker/bad manager of people, lack of personal discipline (I've only ever had 3 bosses).

The biggest lesson I learned was that if I feel like I'm smart and resourceful enough to do it myself, there was no reason not to try.

The worst boss I had taught me the value of human relations and the need to be kind and helpful to everyone - especially how to support and shield your subordinates from your tyrannical boss - for they too come into the direct line of fire many times.
I came to tell all those who suffer their bosses, "Remember, its just a job! Do not take it personally or let it ruin the rest of your life."

The best thing I learned from a lousy boss is ... life is way too short, and if things don't improve soon (did I do what I could to improve the situation?) then its time to move-on. When I was a boss, I made sure to put people first, their happiness and their goals. I got a lot of praise from folks for being a so-called good boss. Its just felt natural to me.

It's possible to know nothing about what you're in charge of and succeed if you can always take credit for success and blame others for the mistakes. To put a more positive spin on it, being able to relate well to your superiors is the most important part of your job.

Is your marketing automation working for you -- or against you?
That alcoholism is a very destructive disease that disrupts a lot more than the people you manage.

From the worst bosses I had, I learned how not to be a boss, so when I decided to start my own company, I will (hopefully) do better.
I also learned, working at certain software companies, how not to design software.
I call this "negative IP"(TM).
:)
The best part is that you can never get sued for using "negative IP" (how not to do things), because they just tell you one or two ways to avoid, out of many possible ways...
