We've spent two decades focused on the details of leading teams - how to inspire, how to challenge, and how to build culture.
The Becoming a Best Boss System started when Thomas discovered he was a jerk boss. And he never intended to be -- he thought he was good.
Once he faced reality, his choices were, [a] get himself out of management forever; [b] resign himself to being a jerk boss; or [c] learn to be a great boss.
Thomas spent the next nine years obsessed with finding the best guidance possible on how to lead others. He waded through the 95% of leadership guidance that's wrong, toxic, mistaken, overly narrow, or "True But Useless." He only kept what worked for him and his clients.
In 2014 Thomas created a system that integrates the most useful and actionable guidance from dozens of the world's greatest leadership and management thinkers and writers, from Peter Drucker to Mark Horstman to Edgar Schein to Amy Edmondson.
Thomas was a high functioning technologist for Oracle and IBM who knew he lacked people skills. Once he plateaued technically, he became a student at the school of people skills, and most specifically, leadership skills.
More than twenty years later, he's a recognized master of the art of leading teams. He teaches CEOs (and those who want to become CEOs) everything he knows via 1:1 coaching and small group, experiential learning.
