Why help a boss become a 'Best Boss?'

One study found that 50 percent of work-life satisfaction is determined by the relationship an employee has with his or her immediate boss. And, a 1999 Gallup poll determined that employees leave bosses, not organisations. 

Help reduce turnover and foster better boss-employee relationships with the Best Boss Inventory. The instrument provides a model for emulating the traits of 'best' bosses, giving individuals insights into their behaviours in leading, motivating, and inspiring their employees. The Best Boss Inventory assesses 6 key skills, including Connecting People with Purpose, Encouraging Ownership, Focusing Efforts on Smart Work, Building Competence, Recognising Achievements, and Respecting the Individual.

Learning Outcomes

• Learn about the behaviours that are linked to 'best' bosses
• Determine strengths and areas of improvement in 6 best boss categories
• Expand and enhance best boss skills.
