Learn why companies like Google build phenomenal teams within unconventional workplaces, and rigid corporate offices stifle innovation and tear apart teams with unnatural structures.
Leaders Eat Last
The infographic charts a course for would-be leaders to follow. But it’s not a conventional journey. No, on the contrary, you will find that traditional corporate practices actually undermine leadership teams.
In 2012, poor leadership contributed to 56% of corporate failures, with 30% of UK employees dissatisfied with their jobs. Why was this? And have things actually improved in the past decade?
Sinek argues that mutual trust is a cornerstone of all successful businesses, and demonstrates how leaders can inspire employees to reach their full potential by fulfilling their side of a fundamental social contract.
Why some teams pull together and others don’t
Unfortunately, too many leaders sacrifice the welfare of employees for personal gain, which results in a demotivated workforce and poor performance. Clearly, we need better leadership.
Here are a few highlights from the infographic:
- 43% of employers rated their line manager ineffective,
- poor leadership contributed to 56% of business failures,
- 70% of employees do not engage or actively disengaged in most businesses, and
- we would happily give leaders privilege in exchange for security.
