There is a well-known phrase: ‘people leave managers, not companies’. Ensuring your organisation is made up of leaders with the right characteristics, level of self-awareness, potential and ability is fundamental in fostering an environment of high engagement and high performance, both of which are key drivers of business success.
Leadership goes beyond the successful delivery of projects or achievement of strategic targets; it’s about engaging your people on the journey towards realising a vision. We surveyed over 200 HR and business professionals on their views on leadership, engagement and talent, and a host of recommended actions from industry experts that you can implement in your own organisations.
This whitepaper aims to reflect on the relationship between leadership and engagement, covering the following themes:
- The role of leaders in driving engagement and performance through team values
- Psychological methods of defining talent and measuring potential
- The impact of employee engagement upon performance
