Team Leader Eldar’s Story

By July 29, 2019 August 20th, 2019 No Comments

“While the world’s workplace has been going through extraordinary historic change, the practice of management has been stuck in time for more than 30 years.” This despite every second manager having an MBA? Based on an enormous study by Gallup consulting, (tens of millions of in-depth interviews across 160 countries), the world’s most serious short term (5 to 10 year) problem is declining economic dynamism and productivity. Their remedy? Maximising human potential by fixing the practice of management. Not politics and not policies can fix this, but rather those that lead the world’s 10 000 largest organisations (for and non-profits as well as government).
Today, more than ever, people want a “great job” where they are engaged in meaningful and fulfilling work and feel they are experiencing real individual growth and development in the workplace. People with great jobs have very different life outcomes. Besides contributing to your booming business, they inspire others, they solve problems instead of creating them, they have fewer workplace accidents and make little to no mistakes or defects. Unfortunately, only 15% of the world’s workers are engaged at work and 70% of the variance in team engagement is solely determined by their manager. Therefore, nothing, literally nothing. Again nothing… a CEO does will authentically, structurally and sustainably change the value of your organisation more than deliberately developing more great leaders and reducing the number of lousy ones.
If you feel strongly about his issue, you will find this short presentation by Alibek Melis and Diana Sokhranova of Imperial Tobacco, Volvograd, about Eldar, a team leader who was “discovered” accidentally because “The MBU brings to the surface the talents you previously could not see.”
