There is a reason Hollywood produced a movie called Horrible Bosses. Listen in on conversations at a happy hour on any given Friday, and you will hear all about them: Bad bosses can be found at every level of management, and they often display the same characteristics. During Kevin Sheridan’s leadership development workshops and keynote speeches, after teaching how important the manager-employee relationship is to improving employee engagement, he challenges participants to become someone’s “best boss.” He then explores the qualities of a best boss. However, it is just as valuable to consider the opposite. What traits do horrible bosses most often exhibit? This webcast will help you realize if you are working for a bad boss, but also help you to determine whether you are exhibiting any of these traits yourself. This webcast will teach participants the key traits of being a great boss, in addition to providing actionable best practices for being a best boss to your direct reports.
