Oh, for Pete’s sake. Someone out there wants to ban the word ‘bossy’. I think it’s to stop little girls being labeled. Well, guess what, I want my daughter to be bossy. I don’t want men to boss her around; I want her to do the bossing. And get paid for it.
Do you know how much real bosses get paid? Way more than those play-nice leadership types. After all, bosses make things happen while leaders envision things somehow happening.
To drown out the ban bossy campaign, I played “Won’t Get Fooled Again” by The Who, just to hear these lyrics loudly: “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.”
That’s right! Boss is boss is bossy. If you don’t like it, go find a different job. And good luck finding one without a boss attached.
Hmm, for the record, I tend to be one of those play-nice leadership types. Until things go wrong. Then I need a boss’ help.
