Many have tried to lead while seeking popularity only to find that, indeed, they are loved but not respected. Becoming a more likeable boss however does not mean you have to sacrifice respect. Being a likeable boss and a respected boss does mean you have to learn to be more effective. This course helps you take the first steps of what will be a continuous journey towards becoming a more effective boss, the side effects of which are both likeability and respect.
