[McKinsey] Are you an inspiring leader? You may be surprised...

Do you believe you’re an inspiring leader? If you answered ‘yes,’ you’re not alone.

Data compiled from McKinsey Organizational Health Index indicated about 77% of upper management perceive themselves as inspiring.

But most employees don’t agree with their leaders.

A new survey published by Forbes Magazine found that 65% of employees would rather see their bosses fired than receive a raise.

Ouch. The disparity between these two groups should greatly concern those of us who lead teams.

Do effective leaders need to be inspiring?

Apparently, they do. Now, more than ever before.

A seismic shift is occurring as millennials constitute a larger population in most companies. Right now, the youngest millennials are 22 years old.

For these employees, the goal isn’t just a nice paycheck or an impressive title. They’re looking for leaders and workplaces that give their lives meaning, fulfillment, and connectedness. They want to be...


How have organizations like Accenture, Marriott, Starbucks, Microsoft, Google, and LinkedIn captured the imagination and loyalty of their millennial employees?

They’ve created workplace environments that thrive on effective leadership and people-centered cultures that prioritize employee fulfillment.

The builders of organizations like these agree it is no easy achievement.The most difficult part is that it requires a deep personal transformation in the team leader: YOU!

But, not to worry. You can do it!

Receiving behavioral feedback from coworkers is the quickest way to dispel your false assumptions about your leadership savvy.

When our clients look at the results from their Teamalytics 360 Report, they quickly and easily compare their self-perception with their team’s perceptions.

For example, if you rank low on the report’s Energy and Expressiveness scale, you may be perceived as hard to read or indifferent in some settings. You may also struggle to generate enthusiasm for projects or inspire your team.

Another important scale is the Need to Nurture, which measures your tendency to encourage, sympathize, and connect well with others. If you score low on this scale, you may have trouble forming meaningful and empowering relationships with your team. If you aren’t taking the initiative to encourage and empower your teammates, you won’t be perceived as an inspiring leader.

Do you believe you’re an inspiring leader? How would your teammates and direct reports answer this question?

The Teamalytics 360 Report will help you get feedback on your behavior and make course corrections so you can become the inspirational leader you want to be!
