Employees today wield more power, control and choice than ever before. They are looking for more than a paycheck and a promise of a promotion. Instead, they are looking for a place where they can belong, contribute meaningful work and have opportunities to grow and develop.
In other words, they are looking for more than a manager to direct them - they are looking for a coaching leader to engage them.
- 77% of managers felt they did a good job engaging their people
- Only 12% of employees felt their managers did enough to engage them
- In fact 2/3 of employees would forgo a pay raise to see their manager fired
