Length: 45 min.
Description: There is a secret to becoming a more likable leader. It doesn’t have to do with how tall and charming you are, or how often you give employees a raise. In fact, we have evidence that the majority of the behaviors displayed by the most likable leaders have to do with the way they interact with employees on a day-to-day basis.
But first, does being liked by your employees even matter?
In a study of 51,836 leaders, we identified 27 who were rated at the bottom quartile in likability but were in the top quartile for overall leadership effectiveness. That equates to approximately 1 in 2000 cases that a boss who is highly unlikable appears in the top quartile of overall effectiveness. Apparently, being liked by your employees does matter…a great deal!
So, if you choose to be more likable, what can you do?
Join Jack and Joe to learn the 7 key actions that our research shows will substantially increase your likability score! Register and attend the webinar and you’ll have the opportunity to take our complimentary “Likability Self-assessment.”
