"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

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.

  1. The Myth of EMPOWERMENT
  2. The Myth of FAIRNESS
  3. The Myth of the JERK BOSS
  5. The Myth of the NATURAL LEADER
  6. The Myth of the HR POLICE
  7. The Myth of TIME

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

IT’S OKAY TO BE THE BOSS provides leaders and managers a step-by-step guide back to being the boss their employees appreciate and deserve.

  1. Make TIME to talk about the Work - have lots of small conversations about the work to be done.
  2. Talk like a COACH - use descriptive language.
  3. Make ACCOUNTABILITY a Process, not a Slogan -employees thrive when accountability is consistent and documented.
  4. Deal with LOW PERFORMERS - 4 critical reasons why you must deal with low performers.

This is one of the BEST videos I have seen in awhile. It cuts right to the core of the issues and hits you with the truth... Humor, presentation style and high energy keep you engaged while learning what needs to be done... My intent was to find a video to show my employees what they needed to start doing. This video not only accomplished that, but also made me sit straight up in my chair as I realized all of the things that I needed to start doing too. A great lesson for all levels of management in any industry. I HIGHLY Recommend this video!!

    Tracy Lee - Director of Systems & Training
I really liked "It's Okay to be the Boss" because I agreed with the 7 myths and the 4 traits of a good boss. I think Bruce Tulgan is very entertaining while he shares critical management information. I think new and experienced managers need the information he provides. And having been a manager for over 30 years I would definitely agree that it is very important to spend time with your people and to be absolutely sure that they understand what you are expecting of them. I find that many new managers don't realize this and they just assume their folks know what is expected of them and what they should do. We will definitely use this video in our sessions with our new managers.
