Pete Ashby from discusses the real value in assigning the best workers to the best bosses.


(Thursday, November 22, 2012) United Kingdom - Pete Ashby, top UK leadership coach who heads up tells of findings by the American National Bureau of Economic Research that found that "the largest productivity gains in organisations come from assigning the best workers to the best bosses.”

Host Pete Ashby says: “What was especially powerful was the finding that the most significant impact of the best bosses on performance ‘didn’t come from their motivational skills but from teaching workers how to be more productive.’”

At this point Pete Ashby goes on to say: "The research uses various econometric statistical techniques that are very dry and in their own way make the findings that much more compelling.”

Pete, founder of the popular leadership behaviours blog states that, "The best Execs and “the best workers”, to use the National Bureau’s language, don’t just want their bosses just to give them a rallying cry and leave them to get on with it. They want more than that.”

"They have questions they want to discuss, ideas they want to bounce off them, and maybe some aspects of the overall vision that they would like to question and perhaps even try to renegotiate.”

"They want their pound of flesh – and that is why they’re so good.”

He then discusses the value of interaction and how, "it goes without saying that the “best bosses” won’t want anyone to feel stifled by them being part of the journey and of course there will be times when they know that they need to duck out and give teams the space to take their own decisions without them.”

Pete Ashby of then talks of interdependency and precisely how "you achieve the greatest increases in productivity by combining the best bosses with the best workers.”
