Reduce turnover and foster better boss-employee relationships using Best Boss Inventory. This instrument 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.

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.
