Internet memes and popular management articles often draw a stark line between leaders and bosses. It comes down to boss vs leader, and, apparently, all managers fall in one of two categories all the time. In these oversimplified distinctions, bad bosses are intemperate, mean-spirited shouters, out of touch with the challenges their direct reports are facing. They criticize, micromanage, don’t listen, and take credit for the hard work of others. By contrast, true leaders are wise, calm, empathetic, knowledgeable octopuses who use their eight arms to gracefully manage the competing demands of direct reports and upper management.In reality, the distinction between a good and bad boss isn’t so clear — especially after a single conversation — and it isn’t always easy to identify the good versus the bad before you accept a job offer and commit yourself. So during your job interview, how can you evaluate the management skills of the person across the table? How can you predict the strength of your future relationship with your supervisor? Follow these four strong tips before and during your next interview.
