Some people are meant to be leaders, and others are followers. And if you are a leader, chances are you are a manager, a boss, or even an entrepreneur. However, if you are not, you would be the one working for a boss, and you would have had some excellent and some terrible ones.
You don’t hear too much about great bosses because people only talk about having an extraordinary boss if the topic around it comes up. However, you often hear about nightmare bosses. And September 11th is Boss Employee Exchange Day, so the focus now is the four ideal zodiac signs that would make outstanding bosses based on the best managerial and assertiveness skills to keep their egos in check. The four zodiac signs that make excellent bosses are…
Aries – A Born Leader
Aries is the born leader, the first sign of the zodiac, and a cardinal fire sign. Unsurprisingly, this sign would be in the top four and the first. Aries may have a bad rap when it comes to losing control of their anger when not getting things their way and not being patient. However, the Aries are pretty logical, and you know how intense their determination is. Those with this sign also make excellent bosses because they are not egotistical and can make decisions without allowing their emotions to dictate them. They can be highly cooperative, creative, and innovative.
The combination of those traits is what makes them powerful bosses. The other thing about the Aries boss is that they are gregarious, want to look at the bright side, and always see an opportunity for improvement, even if a situation appears bleak. The only downside is that they can be too fierce and aggressive when setting deadlines because of their hasty nature. But they will be more understanding than you would imagine if you were to have family issues or other legitimate issues that could get in the way of your productivity. Remember, they are negotiable and cooperative. The following excellent boss is another fire sign.
Sagittarius – Not Inclined To Micromanage
The Sagittarius makes an excellent boss as they will not micromanage; they are highly creative and self-reflective. They also believe everyone fulfills their potential when working cooperatively in a group. A Sagittarius boss will never treat their employees as if they are fragile. They want their employees to think for themselves, learn, and become independent while working with others. Sagittarian bosses promote teamwork and creativity while they do what they need to do to keep improving the workplace.
They are also interested in hearing their employees’ input when it comes to ideas for improvement in the workplace. They encourage their employees to develop strategies to share during meetings as the Sagittarius boss will consider what they say and implement those ideas in their plans if they feel those strategies can be a good fit. The Sagittarius boss is one of the best ones to work for because you would feel valued as an employee. The following boss would be an earth sign, as you would expect one to be a great boss.
Virgo – Leads With Purpose And Are Natural Humanitarians
Virgo is a great boss, and they want to keep developing their company or product and their employees to be as involved as possible. Virgo bosses constantly have a great concept or purpose in mind, which is why you would like to work for a Virgo boss. The only downside is that they can be somewhat nitpicky because they want to avoid facing adverse outcomes from their work because of their overthinking nature. But it can be tolerable to handle, and that is because they have a passion for helping their employees build lives that can help them make them productive and lives that will make them proud.
Therefore, their desire to help their employees will override their need to be too nitpicky. And their passion for helping can help them water down their critical nature if one of their employees makes a mistake in one of their projects. They will help give them the guidance they need to improve their work more straightforwardly. The Virgo boss realizes that being overly critical of their employees will hinder productivity and only cause them to doubt themselves, which is the last thing they want to happen. Let’s review the last ideal zodiac sign for a boss.
Libra – They Are Fair Bosses
Libras make excellent bosses, which may sound contradictory since they struggle to make decisions and face conflict, which bosses need to do. That said, Libras are known to be followers instead of leaders. But Libra bosses can be the best because they are fair and analytical. Remember, they are an air sign. Libras also want to do what is morally right, which means you can trust them to do the correct thing and that they will do what is fair.
The Libra boss will not favor one employee over another, and they will also encourage teamwork and inclusivity when it comes to employees that may be disabled or chronically ill. Even though Libras are not known to face conflict, they are good at dissolving conflict as they are natural peacemakers. If two coworkers are arguing or have a dispute over something, you can count on the Libra boss to help them settle it and devise a compromise. The Libra boss knows that to gain and treat others with respect, they will do that with their employees. And therefore, they will work with the right people to help them thrive as leaders.
There may be some zodiac signs that you may have thought would have made excellent bosses that did not make it to the top four list. Let’s discuss why and briefly review what advice the zodiac signs that did not make it to the top four list could use to make excellent bosses.
Advice For The Other Signs To Become The Best Bosses
Taurus – You would make a good boss because of your determination and will not allow tough times to stop you, as you are tenacious. However, you can be incredibly inflexible and will want your employees to go with your visions the way you want without allowing them to give input. That is where you need to change, as you need to learn to be more flexible.
Gemini – You are an excellent multitasker and can also develop unique ideas. But the problem is that you don’t stick to one idea at a time as you will want to tackle too many things simultaneously, which will not work for your employees. They will resent you for having to work so much overtime.
Cancer – You are warm, and you make your employees feel as if they can come to talk to you about anything. You do care about their well-being, but the issue is that you can easily get overwhelmed. And when you are overwhelmed, you get too emotional and will lack a clear direction. You work excellently in a team, even though you are a cardinal sign, you do not make a good leader for this reason. Working on your emotions constantly will help you, however.
Leo – You love to be the center of attention and can be quite domineering without being happy to compromise. You also do not do well if you have anyone critical of your actions and will take it as a slight. You are creative and can always come up with great ideas, but you need to work on your ego, not take everything personally, and learn to compromise to be a good boss.
Scorpio – You have exceptional problem-solving abilities and are highly intuitive, which helps you dig into hidden issues causing significant problems. However, you make a much better colleague than a boss, as you can be pretty inflexible and will not want to confront anyone who upsets you. You will breed resentment and even talk behind their backs. If you become more flexible and upfront about any issues, you can work to be a good boss.
Capricorn – You are highly ambitious, goal-oriented, and those qualities make one think you would make the best CEO or boss. You also work well with structure but did not make it to the top four because your standards can be pretty unfair and unrealistic, and you are not overly innovative, as a boss needs to be. You have to lower your standards and be open to change.
Aquarius – You are highly innovative and progressive, but the issue is you take that too far as you don’t like to be conventional at all. If possible, you would work your way and don’t adhere to structure. You must learn to conform and work in a structured setting to be a good boss.
Pisces – You are highly emotional and sensitive. You would make an empathetic boss like Cancer, but imposing rules and expectations on others makes you uncomfortable, and that is what a boss needs to do. If you want to be a boss, you have to get comfortable and used to being a leader, which means you must place rules and expectations to create structure.
September 11th is Boss Employee Exchange Day, so the topic is what top four zodiac signs make the best bosses. Aries, Sagittarius, Virgo, and Libra make the best bosses. You will see that there are some things in common with these signs. Aries and Libra are cardinal signs which means they are initiators. Sagittarius and Virgo are mutable signs which means they are adaptable.
Bosses need all of those qualities. Aries and Sagittarius are fire signs, which means passion and motivation are involved. Libra is air, which is communication, and Virgo is earth, which is practicality. You notice that there are no water signs that make the best bosses as there is too much emotion, and there are no fixed signs because of inflexibility. But regardless of your sign, you can always learn how to be a great boss, but it may take more work.
