Compiled by Kelly Recruitment, the research in the leadership infographic below from 168,000 people from 30 different countries found:
· Most leaders (52%) on average did not inspire their followers
· In Thailand over 60% of leaders were not inspiring their followers and were considered too authoritarian
· Most employees (62%) on average did not believe in their company’s mission
· There were significant gaps seen by followers who wanted their managers to be more visionary, empathetic, and empowering
