Imagine the impact on your team’s performance when everyone brings their best selves to work every day. This is exactly why an organization’s top 10% of leaders can double the revenue and impact of the middle 80%. When you bring out the best in your people, you build high levels of commitment to your company’s success. Better engagement = higher performance = greater revenues and impact.
You start, of course, by being authentic and building trust. Compared with people at low-trust companies, notes a Harvard Business Review study, people at high-trust companies report 74% less stress, 106% more energy at work, 50% higher productivity, 13% fewer sick days, 76% more engagement, 29% more satisfaction with their lives, 40% less burnout.
