5. Accountability matters:
An excellent boss appreciates when you are able to own up to a mistake instead of blaming it on your tools or co-workers. Even if you think they’ll believe you, they probably won’t. They want you to hold yourself accountable, as they will hold themselves accountable when they mess up. The last thing a boss wants is someone who isn’t able to admit their mistakes, because your boss knows that a strong sense of accountability is what allows you to grow and learn.
