Leadership Development is Bankrupt

Leadership Development is Bankrupt

THE EVIDENCE:

 

  • Gallup Poll: 74% of all employees are “disengaged” from their companies
  • Bankruptcy and Greed: still occurring for some companies (Enron/Tyco)
  • Over 200 companies had to restate their earnings (Freddie Mac the latest)
  • Major layoffs by large companies (How did they get in that position?)
  • Stress and Health issues in organizations worse than ever (“feelings of being overwhelmed”)
  • Today’s complex society is more difficult than ever to lead effectively
  • Simplicity Research conducted over 7 years reinforces all this as well (Gary Jenson, etc.)
  • In the year 2000 alone, 40 CEOs (20%) of the top 200 companies on Fortune’s 500 list were removed from their posts.
  • Anything else?
