Employee Engagement Part 2: Following the Leader – Who?

Radiocasts | June 24, 2015 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: The power to inspire.

Executives and employees agree that leadership today is lacking.

Who says so?

A Workforce 2020 studied initiated by SuccessFactors, an SAP company, with Oxford Economics.

Why?

Because companies are not focused enough on developing future leaders.

What does this mean to you?

Think about the leadership characteristics in your organization that inspire you to come to work and do your best every day.

The bottom line?

Ultimately, how do you know who is worth following? And are you?

The experts speak.

Tom Koulopoulos, Delphi Group: “A boss is someone you must follow. A leader is someone you choose to follow.” (Peter Drucker)

Jennie Moreau, Leadership Consultant: “Don’t try harder, try different.”

Karie Willyerd, SAP: “The average age people got training for being leaders was 42. But most had been supervisors since they were 30. We wait too long to train our leaders, leaving them to learn on the fly.” (Jack Zenger)
