44% of respondents say that the individual supervisor is the highest contributing factor to increasing employee engagement; 39% by amount of communication; 31% by change in leadership – Towers Watson, 2010 Global Workforce Survey
Unfortunately, many supervisors utilize one approach to leadership that may seem to work for them, when in reality, it is not motivating their direct report. Leaders should tailor their leadership style to the situation. Adopting this approach increases open communication and fosters a partnership between the leader and the people the leader supports and depends on. Watch this short video on how you can implement a situational approach to leading your direct reports.

The webcast will be on Thursday, February 2nd at 9:00am PST followed by a live chat with Jim here on How Gov Leads.
