Leadership Blind Spots
Organizations today operate in an environment of rapid, continuous change. Changes engage us internally through events such as reorganizations and hiring. They engage us externally through changes in our marketplace, through the evolving expectations of our clients, and through innovation. Leading a changing organization is a demanding, time-consuming responsibility.
We will examine the challenges of change leadership and the mistakes that often result. We will incorporate principles for leading organizational change, leading individuals during times of change, and managing our own reactions to change.
Out of this discussion, we will create a draft of a change leadership plan. By creating and following through on this plan, we can take a more organized approach to leading organizational change.
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 are demonstrating the qualities of an effective leader, but the findings indicate otherwise. Our research found that: Only 17% of employees are satisfied in their job. 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 as we identify the leadership attributes that are critical to organizational performance and find out what your leaders may be missing.
