Why Leadership Executive Coaches Are More in Demand Than Ever
The data on employee engagement is in, and the findings are startling — according to Gallup’s State of the Global Workplace, only 15% of employees feel engaged in the workplace. That means 85% of people in the global workforce are disengaged, not invested in the success of their companies and ready to jump ship at the next good offer that comes their way, whether they’re actively looking or not. In addition to this, studies show that only 12% of top executives themselves feel their leaders have the right mindsets to lead them forward, which shows that corporate America is struggling to engage and encourage their people at all levels.
For a variety of reasons, including low productivity and motivation, as well as the cost of high employee turnover, these disengaged employees are costing organizations between 450-550 billion dollars each year. That’s no small amount of money, and organizations are desperate to solve this problem. And, they are ready to do the work where it matters — 74% of North American organizations rate leadership development as important or very important, and the time has never been better for them to act on this information.
