Voice 1  
Welcome to Spotlight. I’m Colin Lowther.
Voice 2  
And I’m Robin Basselin. Spotlight uses a special English method of broadcasting. It is easier for people to understand, no matter where in the world they live.
Voice 1  
Today feels like the best day of your life. The leader of your company has offered you a higher position at work. Beginning today, you will be a boss! You now have new responsibilities. You are in charge of people. And you are probably making more money. You feel successful and proud.
Voice 2  
But you may also feel worried. You want to do a good job. But being a boss is new. You must be a leader now. What if you make bad decisions? What if your employees do not like you? Being a good boss can be difficult. Today's Spotlight is on what to do, and what not to do, to be a good boss.
Voice 1  
Today’s program will look at three important things that all good bosses do. First is trust. Having a trusting relationship with employees is one of signs of a great boss. When bosses do not trust employees, they make a common mistake. They micro-manage their employees.
Voice 2  
Imagine this. Mia works for a company that sells online educational programs. Her job is to get more clients. She must find people who will buy her company's products. But Mia does not always feel that her boss trusts her. One day, Mia is talking with a co-worker during break. Her boss walks into the room and begins to talk to her.
Boss
Mia, did you send those emails to our new clients?
Mia
Yes, I sent them yesterday.
Boss
Did you make sure to list our prices from the highest to the lowest?
Mia
Yes, I did. Just like you told me to.
Boss
Okay. Did you also include the information on our new product?


Mia
Yes. You sent me an email telling me exactly what to write. And I did it.
Voice 1  
There are many things wrong with this situation. First, Mia's boss told her every detail of what to do, and how to do it. Then, Mia's boss felt he had to make sure that Mia performed the instructions exactly right. He did not trust her to do it herself.
Voice 2  
This may not seem like a big deal. But micro-managing can make good employees feel like their bosses do not trust them. And when bosses micro-manage, they often spend too much time worrying about details and not enough time leading. A good boss stays involved with their employees. But they do not try to control everything. They learn to trust their team.
Voice 1  
The second important thing that good bosses do is listen. Listening is a good way for bosses to build relationships with their employees. By listening, they can learn about employees’ achievements. They can also identify problems in the workplace.
Voice 2  
Imagine the following example. Chris is a teacher. He loves teaching. But he feels like his boss does not listen to his problems or help him with solutions. Yesterday, Chris and his boss had the following conversation:
Boss
Chris, one of your students’ parents called me today. He was very angry. He said that the students in your classroom were not listening or behaving well yesterday. He said one student was shouting and throwing things around the room.
Chris
Yes, it’s true. Remember the student I told you about? John? He is very difficult. He needs extra help. He—
Boss
It is your job to help him, Chris.
Chris
Ms. Anderson, I have 32 students in my class. Six of them have serious difficulty learning. They need extra help. I have been saying all year that I need a teaching assistant. Would you consider—
Boss
Chris, you are their teacher. Find a way to control your students.
