How to Be a Great Boss Workshop Is Coming!

May 24, 2018

Often, the difference between a group of indifferent employees and a fully engaged team comes down to one simple thing—a great boss. But how do you become a great boss? Most of us become bosses as we grow in our careers. As our job skills develop, we’re given more responsibilities—and eventually that includes supervision of others. We become bosses.

The problem is, while we’ve honed and developed our skills in our field of expertise, it’s rare to have learned how to be a great boss. Suddenly we’re in charge of others, and we’re left to rely on our own natural giftings and the role modeling of our own bosses. Yikes.

Luckily, you can learn to be a great boss. And if you’re in the Minneapolis area on June 28, there’s a special full-day workshop that could change your professional career.

Elevate Your Leadership and Learn to Be a Great Boss!

Based on the book How to Be a Great Boss by Gino Wickman and René Boer, the How to Be a Great Boss Workshop is designed to help bosses at all levels of an organization discover how to get the most from their people.

Co-author René Boer will lead the workshop, which will be packed full of practical tools and methods you’ll be able to begin using immediately. You will learn to strengthen relationships with your direct reports, improve your coaching skills and create an environment of accountability.

Traction Tools’ Integrator Kathy Mayfield attended the workshop last fall and wrote a tremendous review of the event.

But that’s not all! June workshop participants will be among the first to see the brand-new People Tools module from Traction Tools. The People Tools is one of our latest add-on modules, which bundles the Accountability Chart, People Analyzer, Quarterly Conversation, Leadership Assessment and Management Assessment into one package. It streamlines your people processes by pulling in what you’ve already got in Traction Tools.

René will demonstrate how the People Tools can help you apply the tools and methods that you’ll learn in the workshop to becoming a great boss at your company.
