Frankly, part of the responsibility of a boss is being an arsehole. And,anyone who has made the change from management to leadership will appreciate this somewhat.
The trick is in showing you are being an arsehole for all the right reasons i.e. to be a market leader and keep everyone under you in a job and pension (industry perspective) or, to provide the best quality of service and make a difference in people's lives (public service perspective).
Ofcouse, there are some bosses who are arseholes because they have a 1 inch penis when erect, they are secretly in love with you, and are jealous of you getting more sex than they are getting pay rises.
