I once had a Boss, let’s call her Boss A. She preferred information in a mail, even after you had communicated verbally. You had to give her updates via emails as well. With her, if it’s not written, it did not exist.

Another Boss, Boss B preferred you discussed information regarding work with her and only the important information worthy of note via mail.

With these 3 different Bosses A, B & C as a case in study, Boss A was the ‘mail Boss’. Boss B was the ‘relational and then mail’ type, while Boss C was the ‘get to the point, summarize, call me when you need me’ kind of boss.

Now imagine that I was printing Hardcopy documents to Boss A, the mail Boss. Or that I was sharing formal emails with Boss B, the relational Boss and that I was updating Boss C the ‘summarize it Boss’ on every detail of my work.

There sure would be a Hurricane Tsunami & Katrina at work!
