How to be a boss, without being an arse

Got your attention, did I?

Are people complaining about the way you run your team, company or organisation? Do you routinely put people's backs up? Are you constantly on their case? Are people too scared of you to give honest feedback?

Or are you lucky – lucky enough to have someone tell you that you are sometimes a bit of an arse?

(That's terrific. They wouldn't tell you that if they didn't like you. They'd just look for a new job.)

If this describes your situation, you have my sympathy.

But you don't want my sympathy. You just want to change something, so that the problem goes away.

You want to get things done, without being misunderstood.

Being liked is not what you're here for. But it's probably a welcome bonus.

Because you are not an arse. You know that. And I suspect it very strongly, even though we've (probably) not met.

You just get confused sometimes, and when that happens it colours the way you interact with the people you work with.

This interactive, (usually) entertaining and fundamentally practical course will show you the impact of some of the things you may be doing, and help you to find your own way to do things more effectively.
