The Good Boss Questionnaire

Do you want to reduce costs and drive better performance?

The most effective ways to reduce costs and drive better performance in any organisation is to increase the effectiveness of bosses as managers of people.

The Good Boss Questionnaire (GBQ) is a psychometric questionnaire that improves individual and organisational performance by assessing and developing the behaviour of managers and supervisors. It can diagnose and reverse patterns of managerial behaviour which have been shown to compromise the productivity, morale and wellbeing of employees and teams.

Since its launch, the GBQ has helped over 1,000 bosses improve their management behaviour, resulting in more engaged, productive employees.

What our clients say:

The Good Boss Questionnaire helps us have open and transparent conversations which enables managers to identify influential development areas for themselves but also helps them to understand what is successful or repeatable. The GBQ has become a highly effective and reliable platform used as part of our leadership and management development strategy.

Phil Lawrence, Softcat

Using the Good Boss Questionnaire has enabled us to build on the characteristics and behaviours of our leadership team identifying leadership strengths and development needs. This, in turn, has enabled us to work together better and smarter to achieve more.

Jane Boulton, Axminster Tools
