Around six million employees don’t believe in their company.
The leaders themselves are to blame. This is according to the Gallup Study 2019.
One major reason is that many leaders exemplify misinterpreted values or aren’t equipped with the appropriate value systems. This is reflected in poor leadership skills and limited leadership competence. With the consequence that employees become ever more demotivated and identify less and less with their companies. In everyday working life, the consequences will show up immediately, in the guise of a failed project or a decline in orders. Recent studies have shown that a lack of EQ in the upper echelons of management leads to a decrease in productivity, an increase in staff turnover, a rise in sick leave and addiction problems, and a general lack of team cohesion.
In the light of the immense economic damage caused by second-rate executives, it would be wise to have only really “high-calibre” people apply when you are filling new management positions. This is where I come in as an executive profiler. Because “B-rated leaders” will never hire “A-rated employees” for fear of being outdone by them in short order. This sets in motion a negative spiral that is detrimental to productivity while, at the same time, causing lasting economic damage to a company. According to the Gallup Study 2019, this damage amounts to approximately 122 billion euros per year. A low level of identification with the company leads to lower motivation on the part of the employees, an attitude to work in which they do as little as they can get away with, increased sick leave and rising staff turnover, to name just a few aspects. This negative spiral can only be broken by strong personalities and leaders with a strong role model function, who take organisations forward for the long term with positive value systems.
