A Useful Guide to Being a Good Boss

Author: Bob Shiers
ISBN: 978-1-909025-22-6


There is an old and very true saying... 'you can't do too much for a good boss'. Think of all the bosses you have known, not necessarily your own, and reflect on how people responded to them and how well they worked for them. Some bosses bring out the best in everyone around them, whilst others do the exact opposite.

Good bosses have happy and highly productive teams.

This Useful Guide will help you to become, or remain, that 'good boss'.

What this Useful Guide includes:

  • The benefits of being a good boss
  • What your team needs / expects from you
  • Straightforward things that good bosses do

  • Upon completion you will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of being a good boss
  • Know how to get people to do their best for you
