Statistics show that 40% of people are unaffected by leadership development. Here are the steps you should follow to turn the non-responders around. My firm Zenger Folkman measures leadership effectiveness using a 360-degree feedback process in which 15 or so subordinates, peers, and the boss pool their perceptions of a leader. They complete an on-line assessment and the results are then passed onto the leader who was assessed. By repeating that measurement every 12-18 months, the organization can monitor the collective amount of change that comes from any development program. The difference scores tell you whether or not the leader in question has made significant change.

Article | February 10, 2020

A global pandemic. Economic uncertainty. A growing social justice movement seeking accountability for long-standing systemic inequality. An upcoming election. These are all powerful changes taking place this year. Our health and well-being are contending with these forces and the unprecedented change they bring to our lives and workplaces.

For those not working remotely, HR teams are facing employee burnout and concerns for mental and physical health.

Article | February 10, 2020

Before COVID-19 hit, of the 32.6 million people in the UK labour market, only around 8.7 million workers reported that they sometimes work from home, constituting a little more than 25% of the workforce (Office of National Statistics).
