We’ve talked a lot about leadership on this blog. Our surveys show that executives don’t feel their companies have the necessary talent to manage diverse, global workforces, and that access to the right leadership is limiting growth initiatives.
The research also reveals that executives and employees don’t see eye to eye on several key issues. But leadership is an exception to the rule; employees agree that leadership in their companies is lackluster.
Just over half of employees say their manager performs well in terms of leadership, and fewer say their manager delivers on providing feedback, mentoring, and sponsoring them for training programs.
Employees also report a lack of confidence in upper management. As the stats below show, companies are falling behind in terms of encouraging collaboration and diversity, cultivating leadership, and providing feedback.
