It also doesn’t help that most advice about leadership is given by, well, let’s be honest, leaders. Instead of having CEOs and executives talk about what makes themselves great, we thought we thought it’d be nice to open up the floor to all voices–so we put out a simple question on Facebook.

What do you think makes a really good boss?
