Hi Todd,

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.

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.
