Job Satisfaction Hits All Time High. Here's Why

Job Satisfaction Hits All Time High. Here's Why | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

88 percent of employees who participated in the 2016 SHRM Employee Job Satisfaction and Engagement Survey, indicated that they were satisfied with their current job. This marks the highest level of satisfaction over the past ten years.


Although there are many reasons that contributed to this statistic, "respectful treatment of employees at all levels" was at the top of the list for the second year in a row. It even beat out major players like pay, benefits and job security. (Did anyone else start singing a little Aretha Franklin?)

Seems to contradict Gallup Data.  The issue is that we are suffering from survey fatigue and data blindness.

Leadership Is About Emotion

Leadership Is About Emotion | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Make a list of the 5 leaders you most admire. They can be from business, social media, politics, technology, the sciences, any field. Now ask yourself why you admire them. The chances are high that your admiration is based on more than their accomplishments, impressive as those may be. I’ll bet that everyone on your list reaches you on an emotional level.

 

This ability to reach people in a way that transcends the intellectual and rational is the mark of a great leader. They all have it. They inspire us. It’s a simple as that. And when we’re inspired we tap into our best selves and deliver amazing work.

 

So, can this ability to touch and inspire people be learned? No and yes. The truth is that not everyone can lead, and there is no substitute for natural talent. Honestly, I’m more convinced of this now – I’m in reality about the world of work and employee engagement. But for those who fall somewhat short of being a natural born star (which is pretty much MANY of us), leadership skills can be acquired, honed and perfected. And when this happens your chances of engaging your talent increases from the time they walk into your culture.

How to Hire for Emotional Intelligence

How to Hire for Emotional Intelligence | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

We know from research (and common sense) that people who understand and manage their own and others’ emotions make better leaders. They are able to deal with stress, overcome obstacles, and inspire others to work toward collective goals. They manage conflict with less fallout and build stronger teams. And they are generally happier at work, too. But far too many managers lack basic self-awareness and social skills. They don’t recognize the impact of their own feelings and moods. They are less adaptable than they need to be in today’s fast-paced world. And they don’t demonstrate basic empathy for others: they don’t understand people’s needs, which means they are unable to meet those needs or inspire people to act.

How To Grow Leadership From Within Your Company

Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric, may have retired 15 years ago, but his influence in corporate America still resonates. Not only is he known as one of the most successful industrial leaders of the 20th century—most notably increasing the value of GE by 4,000 percent—but he is also a great example of how a company can effectively grow powerful leaders from within their own ranks.

What Makes a Good Leader?

What Makes a Good Leader? | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

When discussing business leadership, the distinction between good management and good leadership is often made. Managers are thought to be the budgeters, the organizers, the controllers — the ants, as one observer puts it — while leaders are the charismatic, big-picture visionaries, the ones who change the whole ant farm.

The Three Measures of Your Leadership Success

The Three Measures of Your Leadership Success | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Are you a successful leader? This is a difficult question to answer: No matter how good you think you are, the only evidence of leadership is whether people follow you. Self-serving bias distorts your perception of your own successes and failures. Even if you’re incredibly self-aware, you may have trouble with an objective assessment because your direct reports may only appear to be following — they don’t get an option to be physically present — and not every company conducts rigorous engagement surveys or 360-degree reviews.

So how can you gain a reasonably accurate understanding of your success as a leader? Try integrating three distinctive views.

Assessing your effectiveness requires looking simultaneously at the past, the present, and the future.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, January 12, 2016 11:16 PM

A very powerful insight into three principal areas for leaders to work on, the now, the tomorrow and then the past in exactly that order! Performing well in the present times, meeting targets should have an impact on what you plan for the future, five years, ten years or so. Similarly, according to the writer, it is also important to look back at your past. Take stock of what went well, what went wrong, and what could have been done differently. It is also about connecting to past co workers and staying in touch with previous organisations.

Elías Manuel Sánchez Castañeda's curator insight, January 13, 2016 2:10 PM

Are you a successful leader?

 

According to Business Strategy:

“This is a difficult question to answer: No matter how good you think you are, the only evidence of leadership is whether people follow you”.

 

I agree.

As heads many of us complain that our employees do not have the performance needed by the company and we expect. Although often we spend a lot of time in training them to develop their competencies (knowledge, skills, attitudes and values). If the results (performance of your employees) are not satisfactory, I think that there are at least two reasons that have to do with bosses or owners of the company:

He could not make a good selection and is now trying a person who does not have the profile nor the desire to be, to become a model employee.Not a genuine leader, not leading by example and values, it is not prepared permanently, you want results (transformation of its employees) in the very short term, although many people do not believe me some owners "enjoy" chaos and / or are afraid of success.

Of course there are other reasons (poor performance of employees) originated in the culture of the country, poor training in universities, inept governments and / or corrupt, but this does not absolve the responsibility of the OWNER-LEADER OR HEAD -LEADER.

The Learning Factor's curator insight, September 25, 2013 7:56 PM

Our workplaces are shifting from hierarchies to networks. Hyperlinks have subverted hierarchy. Everyone is connected. In many hierarchical organisations, workers are more connected when they go home than when they’re at work. This is a sure sign of the obsolescence of our older management control systems and why becoming a social business is so important today.

Living and working in non-hierarchical networks is our challenge this decade. The effective use of social media, to learn from and with others, is essential for individuals and organizations to be productive in networks. Social learning, simply put, is getting things done in networks.
