“We're bombarded by our mobile devices and our ability to pay attention is declining—and extensive research on leadership shows a crisis of engagement in the workforce. Leaders are not satisfying their employees’ needs to find engagement and happiness in what they do, yet many executive salaries continue to rise. You’ll be surprised to hear of the three most important qualities a leader needs to help solve this crisis.”
I enjoyed this recent episode of Australia’s Radio National show All in the Mind. You can listen or download here.
One of the books referenced in the conversations was the 2018 publication: The Mind of the Leader: How to Lead Yourself, Your People, and Your Organization for Extraordinary Results. Another I highly recommend, and one that explores similar themes is Leadership Material: How Personal Experience Shapes Executive Presence by Diana Jones from New Zealand.
