92 Percent Of Bosses Think They’re Doing Good Job; Only 67 Percent Of Workers Agree

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A whopping majority of American bosses are like Steve Carell’s character on The Office: They think they’re doing a good job but are oblivious to the truth.

According to a new survey by the Hudson staffing company, 92 percent of managers consider themselves an excellent boss.

However, only 67 percent of their underlings agree and 10 percent think their boss does a lousy job.

Still, there is one sign that the bosses may be aware of their leadership failings: 26 percent feel they did not give adequate training to handle their managerial responsibilities.

Meanwhile, 41 percent of American workers believe if their boss was canned, they’d be offered the job but only half of those would actually take it.
