Why Employees Don't Trust Their Leadership

Why Employees Don't Trust Their Leadership | The Daily Leadership Scoop |

(From the article): One in three people don’t trust their employer. That’s according to the new Edelman "Trust Barometer", a survey of 33,000 people in 28 countries about trust in the workplace.

 Among the other notable findings, trust decreases down an organization’s hierarchy: 64% of executives, 51% of managers, and 48% of rank and file staff say they trust their organizations, and employees say they trust peers more than CEOs when it comes to company information. Right now, many workers have their choice of jobs that boast high earnings and a range of career opportunities. To stay competitive in the war for talent, most employers are offering a full complement of benefits and perks as well as beefing up their efforts to engage workers through inclusion initiatives. Indeed, many employees among the Top 100 Great Places To Work reported being satisfied with their jobs, but also having a high level of trust for their companies.

 That’s obviously not the case everywhere, according to the Edelman Trust Barometer. The survey revealed gaps between factors that employees rate as important for building trust and how their leaders rated based on those attributes.

When we conflate management and leadership, treating them as the same thing, we make the mistake of missing what leading is. It cannot be defined, but, when we see it, we recognize it.

5 Signs Your Employees Dislike You

5 Signs Your Employees Dislike You | The Daily Leadership Scoop |

In addition to all of your achievements, you're sure that you're a great boss. After all, your leadership skills have helped you climb the ladder of success. But some of the world's top companies succeed in spite of poor leadership, a result of great products or concepts rather than motivated team members.


According to entrepreneurial counselor Michelle McQuaid, bad bosses cost businesses $360 billion in lost productivity every year. The stress caused by difficult supervisors can negatively affect an employee's overall health and workplace morale, eventually driving him or her out the door. Since losing one employee costs a business tens of thousands of dollars or more, your business will eventually suffer financially if you can't keep employee loss at a minimum.

If you look closely, you may find indications that you're not as popular with your staff as you think you are.

I wonder if in School we consider that 1/2 of new teachers leave the profession within 7 years? That does not account for those who obtain a degree and never enter the classroom. What does that mean in relationship to high staff turnover?


One way to look at leaders who are not liked is are they leading or managing. We need both, but I found many School managers focused on managing people and avoiding leading.

The Shockingly Simple Secret Behind Employee Motivation

The Shockingly Simple Secret Behind Employee Motivation | The Daily Leadership Scoop |

Here's the central law of employee motivation, of coaxing a great performance from your employees, day after day: Employees who are selected, oriented, and reinforced properly, and who are surrounded by peers of the same caliber, will thrive when given significant autonomy. Otherwise, they'll wither.


There are dozens of studies to support this, inside and outside of business life.

The case for autonomy: just look in the mirror.

Your First 5 Minutes With a New Hire | The Daily Leadership Scoop |

OK the following is likely to take more than five minutes no matter what kind of company you run, but what's important is that you cover it right from the start and that the message is clear to new employees and stays with them.

You make a new hire and his first day arrives. What you do and say in the first five minutes sets the stage for the recruit to succeed or fail at your company so be clear.
