As I work directly with dozens of executive leaders and speak at conferences and events around the country, I continue to hear a lot of concern about employee productivity and workplace culture and whether to remain hybrid or work flexible.
This is the wrong concern.
The right concern for those seeking next-level success in this new era is to ensure that those who are leading others understand how best to engage and draw the best from them, no matter their location.
Over the past 30 years, there has been a steady and profound evolution in terms of what attracts, inspires, and engages great talent.
Whether those on our teams serve mostly from an office or from home, traditional employee engagement and the old work accords we’ve come to know are not enough.
There is, however, a very clear new formula that, when understood and employed, is helping more and more leaders and organizations succeed, while others remain talent starved and growth limited.
