37.4 million Americans are expected to quit their job in 2022. Do you want your staff to be in that statistic? If not, keep reading…
According to the world's most prominent researcher on strengths and leadership at work, Marcus Buckingham, “People leave managers, not companies.”
So, who are the types of managers that people will stick around for?
Consider this real story.
And with that, the perfect day was ruined. Keith and Nancy promised their youngest, if he behaved all day at Disneyland, they’d get him that purple balloon he had been eyeing in the morning.
To their shock, he was a perfect angel and the day was a blast. But, there was one problem. The store had sold out of those purple balloons. Fortunately for them, when a staff member found out, she made sure to get the right purple balloon in his hands, immediately. That one team member made an impression that would last a lifetime.
Most managers never get the privilege of working with these kinds of all-star team members. Instead, they are worn out balancing the demands of a supervisor who doesn’t understand, reacting to disrespectful and unmotivated staff, and trying to figure out how to meet performance goals when so much is out of their control. Sound familiar?
What if building a thriving, motivated team didn’t come by accident? What if there were simple, reproducible practices that would move your department or organization in the right direction? What if you could be more than just another boss in your team’s life? What if you could be a leader that your team loves to follow?
In More Than a Boss, you will discover…

This is a book about the basics. I won’t tell you how to become CEO or how to double your salary. But, if your hope is to become the boss that you would have wanted, this is the book for you.
While this can be a great tool for veteran managers, it is designed to be accessible for anyone, especially first-time managers. The language, examples and tools relate to you whether you have a team of two or two hundred. Your team may not even consist of paid staff. Most of my experience with these tools has been working with volunteers in the non-profit world.
