Is your people strategy data driven?
You may have a great business strategy, but without an equally great people strategy you won’t get the results you desire. Your people strategy should enable you to attract and retain the talent you need for creativity, innovation, and productivity. While many executives depend on their gut in making talent decisions, you shouldn’t, and the data proves it.
Engagement and retention
According to the Harvard Business School, “employees’ perception of authentic leadership serves as the strongest predictor of job satisfaction and can have a positive impact on work-related attitudes and happiness.”
Research outlined in the Harvard Business Review shows that most employees believe authenticity on the job leads to better relationships with co-workers, more trust, greater productivity, and a better working environment, all of which increase engagement and retention.
Self-awareness is the most important trait a leader can possess. Research shows that companies with employees who exhibit high levels of self-awareness tend to perform better financially. Self-awareness is a key component of one’s authenticity.
Everyone, whether individuals or companies, looks for an advantage to set you apart. The greatest advantage we possess is our authenticity. It is the key to unlocking what you really want.
Discovering your Authenticity Advantage is
- not as difficult as you might think.
- based on data.
- what will give you what you really desire.
Or…You can go with your gut.
The problem with relying on your own intuition is that it is no better than a “shot in the dark”, as the experts and the data tell us.
