According to a Harvard Business Review global survey some 58% of employees trust a stranger more than their business leader. What a shocker! Especially, when half of those leave the business and the other half stay, meaning you have an unmotivated workforce. The top 1% of the world’s leaders get their top 20% together when the business plans and reviews points are done. This leads to 20% more advocates that can communicate with their peers in a way you never can. The business becomes an ideas and innovation machine, where the best ideas are delivered by the person who came up with it, supported and sponsored by a board member. The results … people feel valued, part of something good and want to stay where they feel wanted. Now, the 20% of employees may be just you at this stage. Taking time out to create new initiatives and stand back from your role from time-to-time to think about strategy can only help you to focus more on success!
