Every good boss has three traits that will make most people want to work for them. Magnetic leaders have three traits that show there greatness, which makes any employee want to complete any and all tasked asked of them.
This is taken from the Article in Fast Company magazine April 27, 2017.
Many employees would like a manager with the magical three traits, but most wont get it. These three traits will give all employees and personnel a sense of security, an appreciation for the work they do for their company.
Here the three traits that makes for a great boss:
Authenticity – Good leaders don’t try to become someone else they stay in their lane and be themselves. They are honest, true to themselves and diplomatic when dealing with others. Many people don’t see authentic people at the office so its important that you display this behavior at all times.
A 2017 trust Barometer survey found by the PR firm Edelman found that trust in CEOs in the U.S. has reach an all-time low.
Be willing to admit you don’t know everything. People need to know your human and you make mistakes as well. People willing to learn from your people along the way
2. Vision – Visionary leaders make you want to reach for the stars and dream big. A leader with great vision can sale himself or herself to you so you get on board with a project or task that needs to completed. You believe in the vision of your leader, because he/she has the right stuff, so most employees are more prone not to ask the question Why ? But, instead they ask Why not ?
3. Selflessness- Is the final of the three traits that make a great boss. Great leaders put the needs of his team before his own. Being selflessness is a mind shift which requires one to come out of their comfort zone and into the reality that serving other people is part of the job and the task at hand.
To find out if you are a selflessness person ask your self these three questions:
Are people following me because of what I can do for them, or are they doing so because of what I can do to them?
Do I take more than I give?
What have I done today to put others before myself?
These three traits are what makes for a great boss, great company, and great people that work their asses off and go the extra mile no matter the task.

Many other states have low College Tuition or some sort of program to help students get into college.

There so many gurus in this industry, that it often puzzles me, if the industry is just making a killing on preaching and selling products. Motivational Speaking is big business.

Your business may not be getting the results it needs with its marketing, based off two reasons credibility and qualified leads. Marketing is the elephant in the room for new startups, or entrepreneurs that leads to business failure. Many entrepreneurs, and small business owners fail to build credibility, and generate qualified leads at the same time.
Credibility is the engine that drives the wheel in the marketing machine. Generating great leads comes as a result of having great credibility(street cred or corporate cred), or what ever word you wanna call it. A lot business owners don’t get the two mixed just right, its like a pot of hot gumbo.
In an article published by Fast Company , they stated “In fact, it’s easier than you might think–Unfortunately, too many entrepreneurs conflate these two strategies, mistake one type of activity for another, or overdo it on one side of the divide and neglect the other.”
The article says building credibility is what you should put at the top of your two marketing strategies.
