Have you had a boss like this? Part 8

The cheerleader. 

Sometimes all a boss needs to do is to give encouragement… A single word can make all the difference to the workforce. Be the cheerleader on the bench and have a few nice things to say along with constructive criticism. There is nothing better than to show the team that you can and will pick up the pieces if they happen to crumble.  Things will fall apart, things can and will go wrong. We know Murphy’s law, we have all been there. 

Have their backs. 

When an employee knows that the boss has their back they will perform. Support is crucial. Supporting your children, your spouse and your family is the same thing. A working group of people can become friends, and this can solidify a team. 

Showing the employees that they can come to you with problems and challenges benefits both. A CEO can have the vision and all the funding in the world… But without a solid, dedicated team you may as well be the Titanic.  


Employees, most employees will come to work, to work. If you do not give them clear instructions and directions, they will be on social media all day. If one does not let employees come to them with an openness and understanding, there will be failures. The department heads and managers are crucial to communication. A good leader and boss need good communicators.  Much like a personal relationship your co-workers cannot read your mind. 

A good team. 

The company, be it large or small needs, good key people. Those key people need to be accountable, open and honest. They must see and align themselves with the vision of their boss. They must be innovative and open-minded. 

This is from personal experience… When you ask people for their opinion, they will give it. That is if you let them. There are no bad ideas. There may be some that work and some that don’t. But if you do not hear them, you will never know. Letting people speak up with confidence is hard. Public speaking is hard. Having people speak with confidence about their idea is a matter of being comfortable. 

That is your job as a boss. Bring people together and get the job done!

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
