MANILA - The man who built up Acer into one of the biggest tech companies in the world thinks a good boss isn't someone who simply commands, but a leader who empowers. 

"To me, my style is (to) empower, outsourcing all efforts, but take responsibility," said Stan Shih, co-founder and honorary Chairman of Acer.

Shih also says a good boss takes responsibility while allowing his people to make mistakes so they can learn quicker.

"Allow them to make mistakes. Tolerance of the failure is also important, but not necessary. It's the culture in Asia," he added.
