Pete Friedes on Becoming a Best Boss
Nearly every manager is good at some parts of their leadership role, and most are also a little shaky in one or two areas. Becoming a well rounded leader is well worth the effort, because it allows you to handle more different sorts of followers and thrive in more situations.
The upper two levels of my Becoming a Best Boss system, “Inspire Loyalty” and “Demand Excellence” are in part inspired by the incredible book The 2R Manager.
I interviewed Pete Friedes, returning guest and author of The 2R Manager, a truly exceptional book on how managers can step up to the entire role of leading — not just the parts of that role they’re already comfortable with.
