Create Workforces That Take Charge and Get It Right.
Without Being Told.
Leadership That Turns Ordinary Workers Into Extraordinary Leaders
Old-fashioned management overloads you and suffocates your people.
NEVERBOSS is the revolutionary new management approach. Free yourself, liberate your people, and unleash greatness. They'll love stepping up. You'll love stepping away.
They Created Cultures of Focused Freedom and Loved It...
... And Now, So Can You.
We all love those stories of empowering leaders—they stepped back, found ways to trust their people, and got amazing results. BUT their stories are all different, so following them feels complicated, uncertain, risky.
Look deeper. Behind all those stories lies a clear pattern, with common elements they all share.
NEVERBOSS shows you that path. It's more than a fun, raved-about (see below) leadership story—it's also a step-by-step blueprint for your own culture of freedom and excellence. Instead of bossing, managers naturally start leading and creating leaders. Instead of waiting to be told, workers at all levels naturally think and take responsibility.
It's based on actual events, successful turnarounds, and the common elements of liberated companies worldwide. NEVERBOSS lays it all out for you with actions, scorecards, charts, and examples—removing the guesswork and making great leadership contagious at all levels.
Praise for NEVERBOSS
The new wave of leadership.
Transformation Has Been Magnificent
I first hired Kevin Crenshaw as a business coach for me personally. The results were so profound that my partners were asking what happened to me. Then we hired Kevin as a facilitator for our firm's retreat. We were so happy with the results that we hired him as our contract COO. The transformation has been magnificent.
A Good Read That Shows You "How"
Why didn't Kevin write this book earlier?... I really could have used it in my last two startups. Finally, a good read that not only provides the 50,000 ft level but also brings it down to Earth with how-to's. When I see "how" someone did something and not just the principle behind it, I can easily see how I can use that in what I do.
NEVERBOSS is The Way of the Future
NEVERBOSS is the way of the future. As a Director of a large organization and someone who is always looking for ways to improve my own leadership, I found the Principles to be solid and easy to apply. I enjoyed the character of Jeffrey, who opened our eyes to become better leaders. The results speak for themselves with lower turnover and happier employees.

The Book is Brilliant
The book is brilliant. I read it from the first to the last page and took notes. Kevin gives himself 100%—openly sharing his knowledge, understanding, and application.
I liked the book's structure as well. For this topic, it was better than a parable and way beyond the classical educational approach.
Neverboss made me think and engage, besides involving my emotions all the time. So both my left and right brain worked as I learned.
This book needs to be read by as many people as possible, from the C level to the front line.
A great book with some really solid principles. I enjoyed the story and appreciated the lessons being put into context. I honestly can't imagine getting as much out of a howto book in any other format, this really is brilliantly done. The story weaves in actual case studies, real-life examples and success stories with references. The principles are also backed up with references to various scholarly works that I would never find time to suffer through... so the author saved me a ton of time in his condensing this down.
The "How To" for Developing a High-Performance Organization
A tremendously great read for any business owner! For years I've advised owners on effectively leading their employees, I wish I had simplified it as well as Kevin has done here. He's done such a great job that we are advocating it to all our clients as the "how to" for developing a high-performance organization.
A Life-Changing Book for Anyone Who Leads Others
A beautiful and functional guide to success in business and life. Kevin and Laura manage to teach timeless principles through an engaging story backed up by real-life experiences. They cite authority from many other popular books and provide examples and tools that will help me put the concepts I learned in “Switch” and “7 Habits” into action. They provide brilliant solutions I hadn't thought were possible for many other difficult situations that arise in the story. This is a life-changing book for anyone who leads others; whether in business, as a community volunteer or as a parent. I highly recommend it.
Fun to Read, Easy to Grasp
NEVERBOSS is fun to read, the tools are easy to grasp, and I am humbled by the way it's easy for managers to understand what is most important about turning a company around. This takes the NEVERBOSS philosophy and breaks it down into its individual components eloquently and simply. You see the worksheets keep pace with what is going on in the story. I have done turnarounds before, but this will make my next adventure much easier... and more fun.
As Easy to Read as 5 Dysfunctions
Spot on, practical, efficient, effective. Right up to date with common-sense wisdom that reflects all we know today about great leadership. And it's far from a theoretical blue-sky think piece—it's a story that comes with tools / templates and is as easy to read as Lencioni's 5 Dysfunctions of a Team. Excellent book. Makes you wonder why leadership was so difficult before.
I HIGHLY Recommend this Book
I could NOT put this book down. I started a business in 2012 and this book was transformational. We now use it for all of our internal employees and contributors. I HIGHLY recommend this book. Read it multiple times.
