A good boss needs to take the time to work with the employees and not be intimidating.  It is also important that a boss be willing to help their employees succeed and work together as a team.  The reality is, if your employees don't like their boss, they will quickly leave.  This is why it is important to find the right balance between being their friend and leader.

I think Mr "18 Posts" MPHCoach aka link spammer  got the list about right.

Question is, apart from me, are there any actually like this in the UK anymore?

•Build relationships with your people
Agree, tick
•Listen and really hear what's being said
•Listen much more than you tell
Hmmmm, maybe I should but probably don’t do this enough
•Be consistent with everyone
I am, tick
•Have no favorites
My favourites are those who work the hardest, it upsets those who make less effort but I don’t mind that, why should I?
•Have very clear expectations of people, well explained
I try my best, I think I do this well most of the time 80% tick
•Be trusted and confidential, where expected
Always, tick
•Coach, support, develop and grow your people
Yes, as far as people have ambition to improve themselves
•Treat your employees precisely how you would want to be treated yourself (double-check that's enough)
I treat the staff as I would expect to be treated, not quite the same thing but close enough
•Accept feedback yourself and give it too, positive and constructive, regularly
will try harder
•Accept that you make mistakes sometimes and share them with your people
always, tick
•Let people make mistakes themselves and help them learn from them
always if with a little bit of exasperation, tick
•Let them have fun and help them know when too far is too far
what? hit them with a stick if they muck about on facebook?
•Dig in and help at the sharp end when it matters
I'm very good at this, tick
•Treat your people as real people and understand that sometimes, just sometimes, their work isn't the most important thing on their mind
it's a judgement call, tick
•Be a model in all you do
Lead by example, tick

"Be consistent and predictable. It is hard for subordinates to make the boss look good when the boss behaves erratically and every situation seems to result in a unique decision." -- Botha
