8. Play favorites. After all, as the boss, you have the right to decide who gets the best assignments, pay raises, and promotions. And shouldn’t that be the employees you like the best? Why on earth would you do anything else? After all, you need to surround yourself with loyal employees and what better way to win their loyalty than to give them special privileges? And, when it comes to things like training opportunities and developmental assignments, why train and develop employees you don’t like and don’t intend to ever promote? And if anyone dares to complain, you can surely come up with a lot of reasons why their work is inferior. By playing favorites, you have added the bonus of knowing that after a while, all those employees you don’t like so much will probably start looking for another job. Then, it will just be you and your buddies in your own little kingdom. A dream come true.
