At last! A development tool focused specifically on developing better bosses!

Are bad bosses born or made? It is this question and many more that caused the Goodboss Company to be formed. The Goodboss Company is a campaigning consultancy group established to influence  the improvement of bosses' capability.

About Us

The Good Boss Company helps a wide range of organisations to improve their performance by focusing on the many benefits of developing their bosses. It was founded by Andrea Gregory and Lisa Smale. In reality most organisations have and need few real “leaders” but many “bosses” and yet much of the focus of management development and training has been primarily on leadership. Good Boss focuses its efforts on the huge impact that can be made by developing not just the leaders but bosses throughout the organisation to manage and motivate their people more effectively.


Research Insights

Examining the issue of bosses behaviour from a wide perspective is really important to us. Applying expertise from a range of different disciplines we believe is critical to unearthing the causes as well as applying the remedies to the symptoms of behaviour demonstrated by bad bosses. To give our work an additional dimension we work with an occupational psychologist, Tony Borkowski.
