2 hours


Transform your workplace culture by adopting the proven strategies of exemplary leaders. With Best Boss Inventory, you'll not only gain a competitive advantage in your workplace, reduce turnover, and foster better boss-employee relationships but also lead your organization toward greater success. This resource provides the model for emulating the traits of "best" bosses and gives insights into their behaviors in leading, motivating, and inspiring their employees.

How it works

Best Boss Inventory is a self-administered learning assessment yielding a participant's prominent leadership style, as well as separate scores for each of the six best boss indicators.

The six best boss indicators:

  1. Connecting people with purpose
  2. Encouraging ownership
  3. Focusing efforts on smart work
  4. Building competence
  5. Recognizing achievements
  6. Respecting the individual

Best Boss Inventory also includes an especially helpful feedback component for participants. It allows bosses to compare and clarify perceptions and develop a clearer picture of how others perceive their actions and behaviors.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • Discover the behaviors associated with "best" bosses.
  • Determine strengths and areas of improvement in the six best boss categories.
  • Expand and enhance their best boss skills.
  • Learn how to become the best boss possible.
  • Discover the behaviors that top-performing bosses use to lead their teams to success.
  • Assess their strengths and identify areas for improvement, empowering them to enhance their leadership skills to the fullest.

Uses and applications

By focusing on the Best Boss Model, the Best Boss Inventory helps participants discover in-depth knowledge of the six "best" boss indicators. How leaders demonstrate these six skills is the extent to which they are effective at managing people, offering employees the opportunity to pursue professional and personal goals while creating an enjoyable workplace that is rich in trust, respect, and fairness.
