… to BossRater.com. We provide a simple, easy method for evaluating
bosses. It's ideal for rating department heads, middle managers with
supervisory responsibilities, and first-line supervisors in companies and
organizations with multiple departments.
You can appraise your boss simply by completing the BossRater.com questionnaire, either on your own
or through a group-rating process. Ratings are done anonymously and cookies
are not used to track or identify raters. However, please consult the Feedback to Boss
page before sharing the results with anyone, including your boss.
There are 60 traits to assess; each can be graded from A to F. A is best and F is failing,
just like school. To make the results meaningful, be fair and objective. If a particular trait
doesn’t apply, don’t enter a grade. Ungraded traits will not be reflected in the final score.
Keep in mind, however, that too many unmarked questions will likely affect the reliability of
the final grade.
Once the questionnaire has been completed, BossRater.com will automatically compute an overall grade.
There also will be sub-scores for each of these categories: Human Resources Management,
Operations Management, Personal Qualities and Workplace Communications.
(Note: the overall grade is computed on the 60 questions, not the category scores.) The Feedback to Boss
page provides tips on communicating the results. On a group rating, the person authorized to
conduct the evaluation determines how to communicate the results.
Rate yourself. Then, for comparison, ask your employees to evaluate you. When you do that, emphasize - and mean it - there will be no retaliation should their ratings be lower than yours. Revenge will damage your credibility. Workers won't give their all for someone they distrust. With feedback, you'll know what you're doing right, and what, if anything, could be done better. Chances are, when you improve, your employees will improve, too.
This questionnaire addresses the skills and behaviors needed for effective leadership. What you lack, start working to develop. All kinds of self-improvement reading materials can be found in libraries and on the Internet. If you truly want to, you can build a new you.
