If you had the choice between a pay raise and a better boss, which would you choose? What would make going to work every day better?

A survey this fall found what might be a surprising answer from some workers: they want a better boss. Brandon Smith is back to talk about why that’s most people’s choice.

Brandon Smith teaches about leadership, communication, and workplace culture at Emory University's Goizueta Business School. More of his advice is on his blog and at theworkplacetherapist.com. While you’re there, ask him your workplace or career question. We might use your question on a future radio segment.
