As others see us

We had our office holiday lunch today. There were seven us, three of whom are supervised by M, who was the one who organized the whole thing. M is retiring in July, and we got to talking about that. At some point in this discussion, B, who works for M, turned to me and said, "When I heard that M was retiring, I was hoping you'd be the next supervisor."

I laughed. "I tried supervising once, and I didn't like it. I don't have the right personality." I grinned at M. "I'm not bossy like she is."

To which L rejoined, "That's why we wanted you to be the next boss!"

That is a lovely way to "boss" is to lead. See if you can do it, because I think you would be good at it. The real sign of an effective boss is getting things done and having most of it right enough.

I'm pretty good at getting out of the way of people doing work, but that doesn't seem to be the only skill required in supervising. I did try it for a couple of years, and I wasn't a happy camper.
