Absolute Power: Get to Know Your Scorpio Boss



by Jo Tracey November 05, 2010 01:47 AM EST
Over 20 years ago I worked on a Tellers Line at a major financial institution.
It was a normal suburban branch with normal suburban queues on Public Service payday and all of us jockeying to make sure we weren’t the unlucky teller to cop the banking from a local tyre store who used to turn up on a Friday afternoon at 1 minute to 5pm with a bag full of cash that needed counting.
All of us on the Tellers line had one thing in common. We were all scared of the Managers’ 2nd in charge. A Scorpio, he was in charge of authorising overdrafts, personal loans and credit cards. He didn’t suffer fools and he had been known to reduce a Teller to tears when his forensic questioning of him or her revealed a lie or two. If you followed process and did the right thing he would be the 1st to support you in the face of an aggressive customer. If you lied, he would never trust you again.
Scorpio Boss is like that. He knows what is happening without you telling him. He knows what people are saying, he knows the mood, he knows the political environment. He can glance through sheets of data and pinpoint the inconsistencies...and he knows what questions to ask to get to the bottom of the problem.
He will engage and inspire you to achieve the best you can by emotionally engaging you. He is loyal, he is protective, he can transform your career... if you are clever enough and fortunate enough to earn his trust.
If you cross him? He can transform your career...but not in a good way.
If you have a Scorpio Boss, you need to learn to read the signals. He will rarely let on when he is angry, and certainly won’t announce the fact that something has displeased him. Learn to watch for non verbal queues, such as a flaring of the nostrils, a narrowing of the eyes, unexplained silences (whatever you do, don’t babble to fill them), a tensing of the forearms.
He is private and will keep his personal life to himself. Once he starts engaging in two way conversations, you are on your way into his inner sanctum...just take care not to betray his privacy and trust.
On the down side? He can be paranoid, untrusting, obsessed with power and a control freak...
My Scorpio boss all those years ago? I ended up being promoted from the Tellers line to the role of his assistant. He was hard to work for, but fair, thorough and totally prepared me for future roles. He taught me how to compartmentalise, how to tell when clients were spinning me a line and how to judge a credit in a logical and objective manner. He taught me when to empathise and when to hold back. He tried to teach me how to harness my emotions...but failed dismally.
One day after I had had an argument with my boyfriend, he glared at me through the glass partition and said ‘leave your personal problems at home.’
He got the death stare back as I replied, ‘I can’t- they are glaring at me through the glass!’
