What’s the one thing that blocks the Gallup Path?

According to Gallup, “everything else on The Gallup Path shuts down if an employee has a bad boss.”

Great managers inspire. Companies can be horrible, but if a manager is great, an employee will stick around. But the greatest company in the world will hemorrhage talent if there are bad bosses. People leave managers, they don’t leave companies. Want engaged employees and want them to stick around? The key is the manager.
