Description: Who is a boss ? A person who is in charge of a worker or organization. With regard to private sector organisations, a middle level manager can be the boss (in-charge of a department) reporting to his seniors. Hence, there can be different bosses within the company having different responsibilities. And the 'top boss' may be the Chief Executive Officer or the President. In government bodies too there are hierarchies and an individual who is responsible for the work of others under him can be termed as the 'boss'. The above picture shows a lady boss reprimanding a junior colleague.
