Spirited Leadership
51% of the US workforce are actively seeking
new employment with poor supervisors
as the leading factor.

Gallup Survey

The Harvard Business Review recently reported in a CEO forum in which participants concluded that protecting their employees from bad managers should be their top HR strategic initiative. Based on my worldwide observations across 18 industries, the CEOs got to the heart and soul of plummeting engagement and top talent fleeing an organization – bad managers.

Culture eats strategy for breakfast.
Peter Drucker

Bad managers create fear-based cultures that destroy trust, motivation, innovation and teamwork. Employees’ valuable energy and commitment are focused on getting a new position. Individuals choose to keep their heads down to avoid being the target of a bully attack.
