overcome the wales of business becoming a “tough Boss” is crucial.


For a very longtime there have been a serious debate on the true meaning of the word  tough boss   , some believe  that a tough boss is a  jerks or bully who makes his group do only but his wishes. So, in a bit to correct this idea of being a tough boss would imply carrying a scary face, bully employees to get the Net worth of their monthly paycheck, I decided to
make this post based on my understanding of who a tough boss is or How you should qualify a tough boss.
Who is a tough Boss
Somewhat, I do agree  that being a boss over a group of people you may need some traits of a bully sometimes, but the extent to that attitude is what i am trying to address here for every entrepreneur plunging into the business.
Like i already stated above a boss is the one who takes charge of situation, this means he holds the secrete of running things and would always carry his team along in achieving his goals. And not the one’s who disguise themselves as a tough, demanding and smart boss with no iota of talent.
Now allow me as i share with you some of the original traits of a tough Boss, these traits will give you the accurate knowledge who is a tough Boss.
