Salary, Job, Target, Boss, Manager, WorkLoad – Don’t these all remind us of the time when we were working under our bosses before starting our own ventures!
We all have a variety of experiences while working under different bosses. Here in this post, I will be talking about the things people shared about their learnings from their worst Bosses!
Entrepreneur Magazine tweeted
We want to know: What did you learn from the worst boss you ever had?
And it has gone really kinda viral – people started sharing their learnings on it. So, I tried to curate most out of it.

Self-destruction with Micro-Management
Some of them shared learnings and their experiences too about the Micro-management (Which I was not aware of as I belong to an engineering background).
Micromanagement is a management style whereby a manager closely observes or controls the work of subordinates or employees.
Here are the top tweets.
Micromanagement is the quickest way to destroy your organizational culture and minimize your productivity. Also discouraging future hires.

Importance of Team
As we all know the team is the biggest factor behind any startup to become a venture and then a unicorn. 23% of the startups fail due to team issues. Few of the entrepreneurs pointed out the power of the team.
Don't talk down to your employees! Treat them with respect and understanding.

Don't try to throw your team under a bus when you mess up. Own it. I already knew that, but never fails to shock when I see it happen.
