Here are some of the best qualities to look for in the person who's in charge at work.

Considering the average American spends one third of their lives at work, it’s important to make sure your working environment is a positive place to be — even if it’s online. The one thing that can determine a happy working atmosphere is the boss.

While there are many articles on the internet that will list all the traits of a successful boss or supervisor geared towards performance and results, the human factor is just as important when it comes to motivated employees who produce top results.

So to help guide you in finding a great boss — and therefore hopefully a great workplace — check out the slideshow below. Keep in mind as you read that it’s rare to find someone who possesses all of these, but you can decide what is most important to you!
