The majority of small business bosses do not wake up in the morning and say to themselves, “Today is a great day to ruin my people’s lives.” Which is why it’s so alarming that almost everyone (99.6%) have had a bad boss, and roughly six out of ten people (57%) leave their job because of their boss. Bad bosses are truly ruining lives.

The truth is, even if you think you’re a great boss, you might have bad boss traits lurking inside of you. But Debra Corey is here to help. Her book is a call to action for any boss who instead wants to wake up in the morning and be a great boss!
