Your Boss's Profile: Virgo

Your Boss's Profile: Pisces

Virgo's practicality and focus on detail makes for a highly talented manager. They don't mess around with the power struggles and gossip that goes around the office. They focus on not just getting the job done but getting it done seamlessly . Not only do they care about employees, they are able to balance this concern with the bottom line. However, Virgo managers are big-time worriers with a tendency to develop stress-related illnesses like ulcers. They often put themselves in positions of responsibility but find the pressure overwhelming. They think they can manage it all and take on more than they can chew but may realize they made a mistake a little too late. That's when they start getting upset, wondering why no one is helping them. All the while, co-workers thought the Virgo had it all happily under control.

Virgo managers are completely honest and not capable of deceit -- they will let you know exactly how they feel. The ideal work project for a Virgo is setting up a new office. They can organize and motivate a new team and get th order and structure in place. Then, they would step aside and let someone else take on the role of 'manager.' They are much happier managing the hands-on part of a project than the company figure-head role. If you want to impress your Virgo manager, you should keep your nose to the grindstone and keep the files and office supplies in tip top order. Don't involve your Virgo boss in gossip and office politics, and when your manager is in one of those 'why isn't anyone helping me' moods, know that it will pass just as quickly as it came on.
