(From PRWEB) -- Checkster, the leading talent assessment vendor
leveraging collective intelligence, today released a study analysis
that details the biggest misperception and area of improvement for
leaders: the ability to energize their team.
Based on an analysis of more than 17,000 business, non-profit and
government employees, the consistently number one area where people
lacked performance and were rated lower by their colleagues was the
ability to energize those same colleagues. Interestingly, it was
also the dimension with the second largest discrepancy between
managers' self-perception versus the perception of their colleagues
about their leadership competencies. But it comes often undetected,
as many colleagues experienced them as better than they actually
believe, and an equal number perceive them as worse, so the
difference its cancelling itself out in the same team. This
conclusion seems to show that leaders could benefit from using new
ways to reach the people they are leaving cold and unmotivated.
