I'm the Boss! Why Should I Care If You Like Me? Research Results on Executive Likability

I'm the Boss!  Why Should I Care If You Like Me?  Research Results on Executive Likability | Leadership culture | Scoop.it

Bad news for mean bosses.  In a study of 51,836 leaders, we found just 27 who were rated at the bottom quartile in terms of likability but in the top quartile in terms of overall leadership effectiveness — that's approximately one out of 2,000.

360 data from these 50,000+ leaders highlighted seven key steps executives can take to substantially increase their likability.

 

Excerpted:

   

 

Increase positive emotional connections with others.... If a leader is angry or frustrated, those feelings will spread to others. Conversely, if a leader is positive and optimistic, those emotions also spread. Be aware of your emotional state and work to spread the positive emotions.

    

Display rock solid integrity. Do others trust you to keep your commitments and promises? Are others confident that you will be fair and do the right thing? 

   
Be a coach, mentor, and teacher. Most people have fond and positive memories of coaches and mentors. Helping others develop is a gift that is never forgotten.

Be an inspiration. Most leaders know very well how to drive for results. ...The most successful leaders ...also ...roll up their sleeves ...and pitch in with the team. They communicate powerfully. Inspiring leaders...are more likeable.

Chad Manske's curator insight, August 19, 2013 8:00 AM

It takes real humility to ask subordinates for feedback on your performance.  The purpose in doing so is not to expect to hear how good you are, but to hear what you need to work on.  We all have leadership 'blind spots' requiring the benefit of trusted people, ideally honest and critical subordinates, to tell us when we wear 'no clothes.'  If you're open and honest to feedback, and pay attention to the likability characteristics here, you WILL increase your leadership quotient.

Excellent points...we've said it again and again, trust is the foundation of any great relationship both personal and professional! 

donhornsby's curator insight, March 19, 2013 2:08 PM

The article has some excellent points including the following:

 

Fragile—One careless act can instantaneously destroy trust that has taken years to develop, especially when the breach of trust involves a personal character failure.

Jean-Philippe D'HALLUIN's curator insight, March 20, 2013 1:59 AM

From the article : "Leadership is about influencing others, and if people don’t trust you, you won’t be able to influence them. Leadership and trust go hand in hand. You can’t have one without the other".

the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) finds that twice as much potential value lies in using social tools to enhance communications, knowledge sharing, and collaboration within and across enterprises. MGI’s estimates suggest that by fully implementing social technologies, companies have an opportunity to raise the productivity of interaction workers—high-skill knowledge workers, including managers and professionals—by 20 to 25 percent.

Nienke Groen's insight:

Nice challenge to educate colleagues to become more social technology savvy and increase productivity and knowledge sharing at the same time.This will need to be firmly embedded in the organisation to make this happen.
