Let’s play what-if.

Say you’re called into the corner office and given this choice:

  • You can have a raise, some reasonable amount of money to reflect your value to the company.
  • You can have a new boss -- a great boss -- one who gives you just the right kind of feedback, takes your personal life into account, gives the right amount of work, values your contributions, and helps you grow and pursue your next stop on your career path.

Which do you choose?

If you’re like most people in a survey this fall, you’d go for the boss without hesitation. Why is a better boss so much more important than more money? Our Working guy Brandon Smith explains in this week’s Working on GPB Radio.
