Companies that want to be a best place to work, where everyone who enters says “Wow!,” need to cultivate best-ever bosses, the kind who inspire everyone around them to be the best they can be. Leadership expert Deb Boelkes provides a simple blueprint for nurturing your existing team leaders to achieve best-ever boss status.

Amelia Island, FL, November 06, 2019 --( Award-winning best places to work have a powerful secret weapon: Best-ever bosses. Wherever they are found in an organization, these enthusiastic, inspiring and supportive team leaders make each work day an amazing one for those on the team because virtually all of them are working in the zone – the Wow zone.

Best-ever bosses energize just about everyone around them to be the best they can be. Engaged team members give their best efforts and, in turn, influence others around them to do the same. The magnificence grows and becomes contagious. It creates a Wow factor. Leadership expert, Deb Boelkes, says if you can turn your organization into a Wow factor workplace, you can gain a distinct industry advantage in today’s near full employment economy.

“It’s incredible what can happen when you have a great boss. Even more incredible are the kind of Wow results that can happen when your great boss has his or her own great boss. The Wow factor can spread like wildfire,” explains Deb Boelkes, author of "The Wow Factor Workplace: How to Create a Best Place to Work Culture."

Boelkes continues, “These highly valuable leaders can do a lot of heavy lifting for you just by tapping into the talent and passion that already lies within... but may currently be left untapped. Imagine how much more successful you could be if the managers in your organization evolved into best-ever bosses.”

A dozen award winning Best Place to Work executives have shared their success stories and leadership lessons learned in "The WOW Factor Workplace," which will launch at a special celebration at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort on Tuesday, December 10,2019.

As the late Teresa Laraba, SVP of Customers for Southwest Airlines, stated, "If you don't love your workplace, if you are not energized and fulfilled by your role, you owe it to yourself and those around you to make a change."
