Nancy Covert, Dale Carnegie TrainingCPE Hours:
Every human has a physical blind spot, a point in our field of vision for each eye that we simply cannot see. A recent study conducted by Dale Carnegie suggests that leaders and leadership teams have blind spots, too. When it comes to some key behaviors that motivate and inspire employees to give their best efforts, leaders around the world consistently underperform.
The findings presented here are based on a 2016 online survey of more than 3,300 full-time
employees over the age of 21 from a cross section of industries, company size and positions in the organization – from individual contributors to CEOs – across 14 countries in four regions. The primary objective of this cross-cultural leadership study was to identify key leadership characteristics that motivate and inspire people in the U.S. and around the world.About Dale Carnegie:
