  • Leadership development has had very little or negative long term effects because it is based on studying leaders and their traits. Likewise, engagement scores have not improved over the past 15 years thus matching the horrible record of leadership development. Sadly, the leadership industry wildly misunderstands leadership and has no clue why employees react the way they do to what management does and does not do. With that understanding, it becomes very clear what actions must be taken to create a workforce of Superstars who are about 4 times more productive than anyone thinks possible.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
