Don't Be Like These Bosses

Fast Company magazine recently featured a few reader comments on how their bosses encourage - or, more truly, discouraged - creativity. Check them out:

We start every brainstorm with our manager giving us a pep talk that we should go big and bold and not hold back.

Then he shoots everything down. There's no back and forth, just throwing balloons against a brick wall. - thwap, thwap, thwap.\

I leave feeling like a little piece of me has died.


My firm started this online suggestion box where we're supposed to feel comfortable posting anonymous questions or ideas.

But my boss would read the stupidest ones over the phone, and most people could overhear her cackling ideas.

Ideas dried up pretty quick after a few rounds of that.


My boss has a mug with a quote from Henri Matisse on it: "Creativity takes courage."

I love when he brings it to meetings and spends the whole time shouting and browbeating us.

He's not being ironic. He's being an ass.


It's tough being a boss. But it must be even tougher being a stupid boss.
