“Who was the Best Boss you ever worked for? And why?”
Vantage, in partnership with LEADwell LLC, posed these and a few other questions to sixty professionals via our Best Boss Experience survey to learn what Best Bosses can teach us about great leadership:

Best Boss Experiences in Your Organization
We bring the Best Boss conversation to your organization through an engaging workshop. Participants hear powerful stories of other Best Boss Experiences, are asked to reflect on their own stories, learn about Best Boss leadership behaviors, and finally connect the Best Boss Experience to a larger discussion around employee retention, engagement, and development.
At the end of the workshop, participants discuss how to incorporate the Best Boss System into their own personal leadership brand. This workshop is easily customized to fit the needs of any leadership group or organization.
Contact us to talk about how you can put the Best Boss Experience to work.
