Zinger Friday Factoid: Disengaged Leadership?
According to The Economist, 84% of senior leaders say disengaged employees are considered one of the biggest threats facing their business. However, only 12% of them reported doing anything about this problem.
Another very disconcerting fact that leaves you with the sense that when a senior leader is faced with the threat of disengagement the most likely action is to do nothing. We need to step up to the conversations around disengagement and not practice ostrich-like leadership. When we fail to do something about a problem we also become part of the disengaged problem.
