Dale Carnegie Presents: Uncovering Leadership Blind Spots & Discovering the Pathway to Motivating Your Employees
Leadership matters. Leaders at the senior level strive to create a culture of engagement, while leaders on the front line need to motivate employees daily to drive results. Regardless of level, most leaders "think" they’re demonstrating the qualities of an effective leader, but the findings from a new study indicate otherwise. Our research found that:
Only 17% of employees are satisfied in their job.
…and 45% of employees are planning on leaving their job in the next 12 months.
Through a recent global employee study, Dale Carnegie identified specific areas where leaders are falling short – we call these “leadership blind spots”. Join us for business brief, as we identify the leadership attributes that are critical to organizational performance and find out what your leaders may be missing.
