In this episode, Thom Fox is joined by Derek Lusk, Ph. D, Head of Executive Assessment at AIIR. In his role, Derek leverages his background in psychology and statistics to forecast success in top leadership roles.
One of the aspects influencing a leader’s success is their ability to inspire and motivate others, which impacts employee engagement. According to the Gallup organization, in the United States, 32% of full- and part-time employees are engaged, while 17% are actively disengaged. We delve into how the movement toward a decentralized workplace, accelerated by the advent of remote and hybrid opportunities, impacts employee engagement, as well as how this revolution has changed the mantle of leadership. Despite the challenges, there are ways to enhance engagement and build a culture with a strong sense of purpose, and Derek offers his thoughts and advice on how leaders can evolve to meet the trials ahead.
If you’re working to build a more cohesive culture or build your leadership muscles to better engage a decentralized workforce, this episode offers perspective and actionable advice to get you started.
