My fourth boss was a camp counselor, my fifth was a maintenance supervisor, my sixth was an ice cream store manager, my seventh a principal, my eighth a recording studio engineer, my ninth a contracts expert (my first female boss) and after that,... I bring this up because it's graduation season and I've attended a few commencements and it occurs to me that all these young people worrying, planning and jockeying for their spot in the work world may not realize the role a boss is about to play... The right boss makes the worst job tolerable — or somewhat tolerable. Top Workplaces: Do you know a Top Workplace. On the other hand, the wrong boss can make even the ideal job a holy terror. The wrong boss can make you wake up in a cold sweat, make you dread the alarm clock, make you question your self-worth and even contemplate some things you never thought you'd do. (Relax, I'm not evoking a "Horrible Bosses" script. But here's a few things I now know about bosses that I didn't know when I got out of school.
Sanaz Nezami lay in the intensive care unit of Marquette General Hospital, hooked up to a ventilator, eyes half-open and vacant, after a beating that left her brain so swollen it wiped out who she was. "We wanted to keep her alive, her body, her heart beating long enough, so that her family would be able to say good-bye to her," said Gail Brandly, the hospital's 55-year-old supervisor. "We knew that it was such a tragic situation, that the family probably wouldn't be able to cope without saying good-bye. The nurses did some amateur detective work, learned who Nezami was and found out that her family lived halfway across the world in Iran, oblivious to what happened to their daughter. They picked up a phone, dialed a long number, and suddenly they found themselves racing against the clock in a global search on behalf of someone they never got to know. Before it was over, their efforts brought together two very different groups of people — her real family in Iran and the small group of nurses from an Upper Peninsula town who wound up adopting her in both life and in death. "She was a very, very tiny girl," Brandly said of Nezami, who was barely 5 feet tall and thin. Two years ago, she was a 27-year-old Iranian immersed in studies in her hometown of Tehran, trying to earn degrees in everything. "She was a very live wire, very active girl,".
Editor's Note: Wednesday would have marked legendary Michigan coach Bo Schembechler's 86th birthday. To celebrate the occasion, SI. com is re-publishing Douglas S. Looney's feature on Schembechler that originally ran in the September 14, 1981, issue of SI. On a recent soft, warm evening at Glenn (Bo) Schembechler's home in Ann Arbor, dinner is... Bo is cooking chicken on the charcoal grill out back, alternating his attention between his task and hollering at his wife, Millie, who's fixing the rest of the meal in the kitchen. "The chicken is done, goddam it," Bo bellows. "I'm not afraid of him," she says, against a high-decibel backdrop of continuing advice and abuse from Bo, chicken cooker and card-carrying expert on all matters. Coming upon Bo at his worst equates with meeting a hurricane in full force—at his best he's about like a tornado just getting organized. You don't explain Bo. you take shelter. However, there is much speculation that the 52-year-old University of Michigan football coach, who has put together a team poised to make a serious run at the national championship—if it can get past powerful Notre Dame on Sept. "I have not mellowed, goddam it," he says. One old buddy, Gerald R. Ford, center on Michigan's 1932 and ‘33 national championship teams, who lived for a spell in downtown Washington, says, "Bo has relaxed a little.
