Best Boss Inventory - 2nd Edition
by Cathy Proviano and the HRDQ Development Team
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 Gallup poll determined that employees leave bosses, not organizations.
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 behaviors in leading, motivating, and inspiring their employees. The Best Boss Inventory assesses six key skills, including connecting people with purpose; encouraging ownership; focusing efforts on smart work; building competence; recognizing achievements; and respecting the individual.
