Is your “Nice” Boss Holding Back Your Career Development?

Do you have a great boss in your current position? If your first reaction is “Yes!” because they are friendly and nice to work with, then the true answer may surprise you.

Pleasantries are lovely but to truly succeed in a role, focused and supportive leadership coaching can ‘make or break’ your career growth. A great boss is different from a great leader. A great leader is one who helps you plan for career growth and then supports you as you achieve it.

– Do I know my areas of strengths and opportunities?
– Do I receive timely and valuable feedback to help me grow?
