Fight the Undermanagement Epidemic

It has never been more difficult to be a manager. The pressure to increase productivity and profits by doing more with less, while trying to corral a new high maintenance workforce that brings its own set of expectations and demands, has never been greater.

All of this has led bestselling author and management consultant, BRUCE TULGAN, to declare the days of hands-off management officially over.

It's OKAY to be the BOSS is a humorous, highly entertaining call to action for managers, supervisors, and leaders. Based on Tulgan's bestselling book, this motivational video dispels the 7 myths that have created the current under-management epidemic at all levels of business.

As Bruce says, "Follow any problem in business, bad service, missed deadlines, soggy fries...whatever. Everything is somebody's job and everyone has a boss. Everything leads back to the boss."

Tulgan challenges managers everywhere to give up their hands off = empowerment style of managing and to re-engage with their employees - spelling out expectations, providing specific guidelines, correcting failure quickly and rewarding success even more quickly.

"In an era in which so much of the business teachings are focused solely on leadership, Bruce Tulgan makes it safe again to be a hands-on manager. It's OKAY to be the BOSS presents a clear plan to become the manager who will help your team thrive."

- Mike Archer, President, Applebee's
