What do you expect from your manager?

"What do you expect from your manager?"

This question should be answered that shows what type of worker you are.  Mention things that will help you to become a better worker instead of mentioning that you want an understanding manager.

Short Answers

"The most important thing I want from my manager is constructive feedback so I know where I need to improve.  I want to continually grow and having a good manager will help me achieve my goal."

"I expect my manager to provide work that is relevant to both the company and my growth.  My manager should know my strengths and also help me work on my weaknesses."

"I expect my manager to be a smart person who works hard.  If my manager is setting a positive example, I believe I'll be more encouraged to work harder.  Having a manager that bosses people around without doing any work is very discouraging.  So I expect my manager to lead by example."

Long Answer

"I expect my manager to give me relevant work, to be accessible, setting an example through action, providing both positive and negative feedback so I can improve, and finally a manager that will help me succeed.  Ultimately, I know it's my responsibility to be a great performer, but having a manager that I can learn from can help me grow that much more.  That's what I'm looking for."

This example shows the use of key words such as, succeed, great performer, improve, and grow.  Each item listed demonstrates a desire to work hard and to improve.  If you want to think of your own answer, keep this in mind.
