Developing Trusted Leadership
Establishing a vision, purpose, and creating transparency in leadership are perhaps the most important elements in high engagement organizations.
Sense of Purpose
High engagement leadership develops and communicates a strong sense of purpose across the organization. When organizations define their success through the eyes of their customers, stakeholders, or society, people come alive.
By talking about the future, sharing the vision, and translating the business strategy into meaningful, personal concepts, leadership can be one of the most important drivers of engagement. Through their words, communications, and actions, high engagement leaders ultimately reach everyone in the organization.
Mission and Trust
Research shows that “mission-driven” companies have 30 percent higher levels of innovation and 40 percent higher levels of retention, and they tend to be first or second in their market segment. High engagement leaders understand how to build trust through the company mission.
Research shows that among Millennials, transparency from leadership rates as among the most important drivers of company loyalty.
