Raindance Report:
The Essence Of Leadership

Both employers and employees are looking for more effective leaders - that is what executive coach and trainer Jeff Wolf told the Raindance attendees.

Wolf asserted that leaders with a demonstrated track record of effectiveness rank highest in integrity and communication skills. Those leaders also embrace change by being approachable with suggestions and by celebrating small steps forward when they "catch people doing something right." Wolf also noted that the best leaders "create a culture where all people are heard,... they lead with questions [and] have no fear of failure."

He cited studies showing that the behavior of the boss is the main reason people quit a job. "People don't leave companies, they leave bosses," Wolf asserted. He added that many modern leaders are disconnected with employees, thinking they most want high wages and security when surveys show they most want apprecation, input and training.
