Bad Bosses and Your Health

Working for a bad boss is never fun.

Now, Swedish researchers have shown that working for a bad boss can kill you.

Employees who worked for four years with managers who were inconsiderate, opaque, uncommunicative and poor advocates were about 60 percent more likely to suffer a heart attack or other life-threatening cardiac condition.

The study tracked 3,100 men over a 10 year period. And it shows that despite best intentions, what happens on the job doesn't stay at the job - people take it home with them.

Is it really worth a job to be tortured by a bad boss? No. Life is too short.

And if you're a boss who doesn't know if you're good or bad - it's time to find out.
