It's the Manager
It's the Manager equips your managers with 52 of Gallup's greatest discoveries from decades of research into the science of management -- breakthroughs that link to real business outcomes.
While the world's workplace has been going through extraordinary change, the practice of management has been stuck in time for more than 30 years.
The Future of Work
The new workforce -- especially younger generations -- wants their work to have deep mission and purpose, and they don't want old-style command-and-control bosses.
They want coaches who inspire them, communicate with them frequently and develop their strengths.
Who is the most important person in your organization to lead your teams through these changes? Decades of global Gallup research reveal: It's your managers. They are the ones who make or break your organization's success.
When you have great managers who can maximize the potential of every team member, you will see organic revenue and profit growth, and you will give every one of your employees what they want most: a great job and a great life.
This is the future of work.
