Career Growth Spotlight - How a great manager can support your career aspirations

There is collective recognition that managers can have an outsized impact on their employees’ daily satisfaction and retention. In fact, it is often said that “People do not leave bad jobs; they leave bad managers.” We have all heard stories about the impact of toxic and/or ineffective bosses.

Perhaps less frequently discussed are great bosses. What makes a boss extraordinary? How do talented managers boost their team member’s careers, confidence, and/or opportunities? How can you identify one of these unicorns when you have the opportunity to select a future manager? In the absence of a supportive manager, how can you leverage other relationships to enable your career growth? The panelists will address these questions and more as they reflect on formative experiences in their own careers. The event will be moderated by Laurie Bohn, a leadership development professional, founder of TalentVivo and WEST Advisory Board member.

Whether you seek perspective on your current environment, want to understand what to look for in a future manager, or you are looking to refine your leadership philosophy, we hope you'll join us on April 26th for this thought-provoking discussion.

Heike Keilhack, CSO, Ribon Therapeutics
