They Will Give Up a Pay Increase to See You Fired!
As a leader, you know how difficult that responsibility is. In fact, it is so difficult that 80% of your people think you are doing a bad job engaging them. AND, 65% of employees would give up their next pay increase just to see you fired! Now that’s an eye opener. We’ve lost sight of what leadership is all about. It is not about the managing of people, systems and ‘stuff.’ Critical qualities for the successful leader to embrace are mindfulness, selflessness and compassion. Do you think those sound soft and woo-woo? They aren’t. In fact, they are darn difficult to achieve. Jacqueline Carter pays a return visit to the Manager Mojo podcast to discuss the findings in her new book MIND OF THE LEADER: How to Lead Yourself, Your People, and Your Organization for Extraordinary Results. Check it out – before you get fired.
