Radio Show #308: Five Leadership Blind Spots that Perpetuate Disengagement
Special Guests: Jim Haudan, Co-founder and Chairman & Rich Berens, CEO and Chief Client Fanatic, Root Inc.
Many of our current leadership beliefs and approaches date back to the industrial age! And, as we all know, old habits die hard.
Today we are clearly past the industrial age, and are somewhere between an information age and an experience economy. Our people are motivated by what they feel, what they experience, and what they want to join. Yet, many of the beliefs from the industrial age have us directing, telling, and scripting what our people need to do. It is incumbent on all of us to “awaken the sleeping giant” of human potential represented by the 70 percent of people not engaged in the workplace today. To that end, Jim and Rich have identified five leadership blind spots that perpetuate disengagement. Yes, leaders have been functioning with blind spots, due to long-standing beliefs and approaches, and therefore have been held back from having the most enlightened view of how to lead people most effectively.
Join us as we talk about their identified ‘5 Leadership Blind Spots That Perpetuate Disengagement & Indifference’, shared in their book of the same name.
