Execs Clueless as Managers Bully Workers

Grand Orators 27% of CEOs and top execs believe their employees are inspired by company culture and leadership.
Bosses often rely on intimidation to get what they want from employees, according to a recent survey from LRN. The research shows that CEOs and other top executives are clueless about how little the workforce is influenced by lofty corporate-speak, which in turn leads direct managers to resort to threats as a way of driving production. But this dynamic is not effective, and staff performance is suffering in the absence of trust-building, big-picture planning, and information-sharing. C-suiters should consider these results a wake-up call, says Dov Seidman, CEO of LRN. Fostering a values-driven culture “as a conscious, deliberate, long-term strategy can be key to differentiation, success and significance for companies in the 21st century,” he says. “Companies and leaders who pioneer and forge ahead on a genuine journey of governance and culture are the ones who will be around in the 22nd century.” LRN is a business-advisory firm. More than 5,100 professionals took part in the research. To access the full report, click here.
