The world is full of bad leaders. Don’t be one of them.

Be the leader that others respect, gets results, and everyone wants to work for.

We Need More Great Leaders

(Because everything rises and falls on leadership)

The world is full of bad leaders.

You’ve likely experienced this yourself in your past jobs and experiences.

And, unfortunately, bad leadership is everywhere and a larger problem than you may think.

These statistics about leaders are staggering:

“Only 11% of surveyed organizations reported they have a “strong” or “very strong” leadership bench.”
(Source)

“Almost 76% of recent survey respondents described their leaders as “toxic”.”
(Source)

“70% of employees in the US are unhappy in their jobs due to negative management.”
(Source)

“One in two (50%) people state that they’ve left a job at some point to get away from a bad manager.”
(Source)

We need to reverse the trend of bad leadership.

2 Questions For You:

1. How many bad leaders do you know that think they are bad leaders?

Likely none. No one believes they are bad.

2. If that’s the case,
are you a bad leader?

Or at least not as great as you could be?

There’s a lot at stake

(A lot of people are hurt and a lot of money is lost due to bad leadership)

The effects of bad leadership are tremendous.

People’s lives are upended and hurt.

Companies lose billions in revenue and productivity.

Here are some stats to give you small glimpse:

“Managers account for ‘at least 70% of the variance in employee engagement scores across business units'” and “85% of employees are not engaged in the workplace”. (Source1Source2)

“Low employee engagement costs companies $450-500 billion each year” in the US. (Source)

“Disengaged employees had a 37% higher absentee rate, suffered 49% more accidents, and made 60% more errors at work.” (Source)

“Having a toxic boss results in a 48 percent decrease in work effort and 38 percent decrease in work quality.” (Source)

What most businesses are doing isn’t working

(If they are doing anything at all)

If what they were doing was working, why do we have the data we have?

Why are so many people miserable in their jobs and want to quit?

The truth is, while many believe developing great leaders is important, most don’t do it well.

And, probably, many don’t even realize they have a “bad leader problem”.

Check out these stats:

Most organizations believe that leadership training is important at levels, but less than 5% have actually made it happen. (Source)

“63% of Millennials said their leadership skills were not being fully developed.” (Source)

“58% of managers said they did not receive any management training.” (Source)

Only 14% of CEOs have the leadership talent they need to grow their businesses. (Source)

Why does training (that does happen) often fail?

Three main reasons:

1. Higher leadership doesn’t buy-in or follow the principles that are taught in the leadership training.

2. The training is “one and done”.
After the brief training, it isn’t revisited and forgotten.

3. The training itself isn’t high quality.

The Solution

(What you and others can do to make it better)

It doesn’t have to be this way. We can reverse this trend. Every leader who has the desire and who is willing to put in the effort can learn to be great.

Including you.

And including those under and around you.
