How to be a Great Boss (or how to not be a bad one)

Posted: October 22nd, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


There’s more to being a boss than telling people what to do and collecting a larger paycheck.

7 Ways to be a great boss

Great boss vs Bad boss – it’s easy to tell the difference! Image credit

You may not be a boss just yet, but you probably have plans to be one in the future. And like any other supervisory job it comes with its own set of challenges. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of your everyday management tasks and let your leadership style fall by the wayside. However, the boss sets the tone in the workplace for creating a productive and growth-oriented culture.

So how do you know if you’re a good boss? Or better yet, how do you not become a bad boss? Even though you’re given a title, you still have to earn trust from employees. And more importantly, never lose sight about what it is to be an employee. Yes, there are ways to clearly identify a good boss, but it’s the bad boss characteristics that leave the longest lasting impressions.

8 Ways to be a Great Boss or 10 Ways to Not be a Bad Boss

What Makes a Great Boss?

  1. Finds each person’s unique talents.
  2. Coach and mentor every employee and give feedback.
  3. Recognize effort toward performance goals.
  4. Deal with problems immediately, and don’t let them fester.
  5. Help them turn around the “weakest link.”
  6. Give your team the credit…always.
  7. Spend time and be inclusive with all employees.
  8. Be open and truthful.

What Makes a Bad Boss?

  1. Loves brown-nosers, tattletales, and relatives who report to them. They choose favorite employees and cover up and make excuses for the poor work of their incompetent favorites.
  2. Fails to communicate expectations, timelines or goals. Bad bosses change their minds frequently leaving employees off-balance.
  3. Uses disciplinary measures inappropriately when simple, positive communication would correct the problem.
  4. Neglects to provide the airtime for staff to respond to accusations and comments. They intimidate people and bully staff and allow other employees to bully employees.  
  5. Fails to reward or recognize positive employee performance. Conversely, they take credit for successes and accomplishments of employees.
  6. Is not qualified for the boss job by either skills or experience.  
  7. Will not accept constructive feedback and suggestions for improvement.
  8. Lacks integrity, breaks promises, and is dishonest. They even blame employees when something goes wrong.
  9. Does not have the courage to deal with a difficult situation despite knowing that it is the right thing to do.  
  10. Causes dissention among staff members by his or her actions and comments.

Do You Have the “Magic Touch” to Start a Career in Massage Therapy? 7 Reasons to Love This Job

Posted: October 7th, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


There’s something intangibly pleasing about making people feel better.

Help others reduce stress in their lives and just plain feel good.

Massage therapists know how to untie the knots with healing hands

Join an industry expected to grow 23 percent in the next 8 years – train for a career in massage therapy.
Image credit:
http://openjournalism. ca

As a massage therapist, the touch of your hands can refresh, rejuvenate and relax clients in a matter of an hour (and even less!). One of the greatest benefits of being a massage therapist is knowing that you are helping others heal their bodies and reduce the stress in their lives.  It’s a great feeling knowing that you are giving someone a better quality of life.

7 Reasons Why Massage Therapists Love Their Jobs (Letterman Style!)

(Here’s what massage therapists shared as their Top 7 on Sohnen-Moe and Associates blog)

7. The massage “look” –  it’s that half-dazed, feeling great in a surprised way look, and leaves clients moving a bit slower. 

6. Chronic pain relief – clients report relief from pain as they relax in mind and body during a massage.

5. Massage “miracles” - it may happen only a handful of times in a massage therapist’s career, but it’s the moment when a client says, “After all these years, it doesn’t hurt anymore.”

4. Appreciation – it stands out above all else . And a little goes a long way.

3. Repeat visits – having them come back! It also helps to build that ever-important relationship and a strong rapport. 

2. Honest work - massage therapy is one of the purest, most honest and decent ways to make a living because when you put good into the universes it comes back to you. 

1. All of the above! - a career in massage therapy provides a great service both physically and mentally. But the real reward is knowing that when the work day is done, a massage therapist knows they’ve made someone feel better that day. 

Some people enjoy massage because it often involves caring, comfort, a sense of empowerment and creating deep connections with their massage therapist. It also: (more…)

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Drenches IntelliTec College

Posted: October 3rd, 2014   |   Author: Yvette de Ryk


IntelliTec College campuses rise to the Ice Buck Challenge to raise money for ALS

IntelliTec College campuses rise to the Ice Buck Challenge to raise money for ALS…see Facebook page for videos.

Press Release – For Immediate Release

Colorado – IntelliTec College answered the Ice Bucket Challenge with a number of staff members receiving an ice cold drenching in support of ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). Administrators and teachers from Colorado Springs, Grand Junction and Pueblo campuses stepped up to the challenge in support of this neurodegenerative disease.

“This was an opportunity to support a good cause, but more importantly to me, it was an opportunity to have fun as a team. After I was challenged, I in turn challenged others to join me; most did!  That’s what I call team support!” asserts Dr. David Scott, Campus Director at IntelliTec College in Grand Junction. https://www.facebook.com/pages/IntelliTec-College-Grand-Junction-Campus/262270505951

The challenge spread like wildfire, similar to the social media response. As departments began to both answer the challenge and challenge peers, it inspired other programs to come out in support of building awareness for ALS and other related diseases. 

“I am a huge supporter of increased awareness to support the families affected by managing their loved ones and their painful progression in disorders like this,” illustrates Andreas Nilsson, Campus Director at IntelliTec College of Pueblo. https://www.facebook.com/pages/IntelliTec-College-Pueblo-Campus/259583217794. ALS, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. It currently affects 30,000 people and strikes those between the ages of 40 and 70. (more…)
