Boot Room to Boardroom Index

Boot Room to Boardroom Index

Is your boss more of a Mourinho or a wannabe Wenger? Our inaugural study examines what leadership characteristics are associated with famous football managers.

Totaljobs have created the inaugural Boot Room to Boardroom Index, looking at the management styles of 20 of the UK’s most high-profile managers.

The following infographic presents the findings in a league table format based on which managers best demonstrated the characteristics that the UK workforce look for in a boss.

The research found that the UK workforce most look for managers to be positive (34%), open-minded (32%) and reliable (30%). Arrogance (46%), having an ego (37%) and being patronizing (33%) were deemed to be the least attractive characteristics in a manager.

Managers from Europe faired better than their British counterparts in the study, with managers from the continent often being described as ‘ambitious’, ‘passionate’ and ‘successful’ compared to ex-England managers who are described in more pragmatic terms such as ‘loyal’, ‘determined’ and ‘humble’.

Score three goals and become the goalkeeper. A simple game, usually played for fun rather than to produce any winner.
