Hi Reader,

There's no denying it--once you're the boss, the rules change. Say or do the wrong thing, and you could lose the respect of your team--or worse, create a legal liability for your company.

Do you know the new rules of office interaction?

This month in Great Ideas, we'll give you some tips on how to be the boss without coming off the wrong way.

I hope you enjoy this article, and don't hesitate to let me know if you'd like more tips on hiring, managing, motivating or retaining employees.

Nine Simple Rules for Being the Boss

Do your employees treat you like one of the gang? Or do they fail to show you the respect you've earned?

Either way, that's not good. As the boss, you have to maintain a professional distance but still get along with the members of your team. You can't come on too strong, but you can't spend all day in your office with the door closed, either.

We're here to help.

In this article, you'll find nine simple rules--guidelines, if you will--for what to wear, how to act, what to say and what not to say when you're the boss.
