We were never taught how to lead effectively.

Smart people have been talking about great leadership for decades, yet it doesn't seem to stick--we still don't have widespread change happening within our organizations.

The Better Boss Blueprint cuts through the BS, clutter, and complex messages standard in "old, white-guy discourses" on leadership. Magosky walks the reader through ten simple--yet not simplistic--commitments that propel better bosses to success.

Written for all leaders, from corporations to solopreneurs, coaches to volunteers--anyone who hopes to achieve greatness with their team--The Better Boss Blueprint will teach you to be a more effective boss. Create an empowering and results-oriented culture in which everyone thrives--you, other leaders, employees, customers, vendors, and all stakeholders.

Inside this book you'll discover how to:

Get your sh*t together by first putting on your oxygen mask Create your "To-Be" list and revolutionize communication with your team Hold meetings that don't suck and make them 'self-assemble' Engage people by having actual conversations and avoid having a bad-boss nightmare

The leadership landscape is treacherous to navigate: negative emotions, complicated human dynamics, sensitive group subtleties, and messy politics--managing people the hardest part of being a boss.

Too often employees are promoted to managerial positions because they're great at their job--but those skills don't necessarily transfer. As a result, teams end up with disconnected relationships and a lack of transparent communication, destroying productivity.

Whether you are a business, educator or non-profit, The Better Boss Blueprint delivers concrete tools--both the "art" and "science"--to help you stop focusing on workplace dysfunction and start addressing the diseases causing it.

Packed with easy-to-apply tools and candid personal stories, Magosky explains how to infuse humanity and real conversation back into the workplace giving readers realistic ways to create an environment where the whole team flourishes.

Anywhere there are people, there are bosses to be made better. If you lead a group of individuals and want them to succeed--this is your roadmap.

Make the change now to become a Better Boss...and watch the ripple effects on your team, in your workplace, and in your world. Join the quest to live and lead with #NoRegrets!

Review quote

Huge thank you to Shani Magosky for making leadership something fun and appealing to learn and to talk about! The Better Boss Blueprint is a perfect mix of clear, models and tactical tools to become a Better Boss (and human being) and does so with a dash of irreverent humor and a strong dose of real life stories and examples that bring it all to life.

--Amy Casey

As a Chief Business Officer and VP of Strategic Alliances for my company, I was looking for something different. We were making changes in our organization and most of the other books I had picked up were lacking what this one has. Shani nails it. She blends the perfect mix of humor and business to make this an easy read. My copy is dog-eared and highlighted and many of the tutorials she suggests have already been put to use. The only hard part about reading it is recognizing that I am not perfect and that I, too, need to be a better boss. Thank you, Shani - from me and my staff who is recognizing the effects of your insightful book.


The Better Boss Blue Print is a great read for any stage in your career. Expect to find a lot of relevant information and get your highlighter ready. Like you would turn to "The first 90 days," Michael D. Watkins, to set yourself up for a strong start before any new position, you'll want to leverage this book to accelerate or step-change your approach to leading others. Appreciated the personal anecdotes and thought they helped lend credibility to the content. Shani's clearly the real deal. Looking forward to other books from this author.
