Here are three interesting Harris Poll statistics from an HBR article The Top Complaints from Employees About Their Leaders by Lou Solomon.
  • Complaint 3: 52% of U.S. workers say leaders do not make the time to meet with them
  • Complaint 4: 51% of U.S. workers say leaders refuse to talk subordinates
  • Complaint 7: 36% of U.S. workers say leaders don't know employees names
It's not too surprising that employee engagement is such a big issue with less than one-third of Americans are engaged in their jobs. Leaders need to talk more with their people.

This all adds weight to my thinking on conversational leadership.

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
