How successful could your organization be if all your managers weren’t just good, they were great?
In our decades of research, we’ve discovered that few organizations have great managers. We’ve also learned that even talented, well-intended managers can sometimes derail. This lack of improvement is costly to organizations. Poor management is the leading cause of employee turnover. According to Gallup, 75 percent of the reasons people quit come down to their managers.
The culprit is not complacency or organizational failure—it is a lack of understanding of how to get better. Even senior leaders ask themselves “Am I good enough?” or “Am I ready?” Our program has distilled 3 critical components to help leaders answer those questions and make a difference in their organizations, available now in the Being the Boss app.
In just 45 days, managers will develop key habits on their journey toward being a Great Boss, structured around The 3 Imperatives:
Being the Boss is based on the best-selling book by Dr. Linda Hill, Harvard Business School professor, world-renowned expert on leadership, and top management thinker by Thinkers50.
The percentage of people that leave their jobs due to poor management
Better retention through digital, micro-learning rather than in-person workshops
