Leadership: Your Team Needs These 7 Skills from You NOW

The pandemic, the recession, racial justice protests have given us a challenging environment in which to lead our essential teams. Even August’s “On-Site Teams Day” can’t give us enough ways to show our appreciation. Are you running low on leadership ideas? In June 2020, Leadership IQ asked over 21,000 employees how well their leaders were doing and what they should be doing to lead them now – after four months of ongoing tension and pressure.

Presented by: Susan Weston

Less than 30% of employees felt like their leader was open to using ideas and practices from outside the company and industry to improve performance. Are you listening? Are you encouraging new thoughts? This skill is so important right now because it triggers inspiration and effort. The more open you are to new ideas, the more an employee will be inspired to give his or her best.

In this webinar, learn the other six findings your team needs to feel inspired and motivated. You can make an even more substantial difference in how each employee feels about their work and themselves.
