In this episode, John shares a very important byte size important bit of information for you today about developing a positive attitude in your workplace.

BE PROACTIVE

An attitude is one’s ability and capacity to overcome challenges that face them on a day to day basis. Most companies do not cultivate or provide in the area of attitude development nor help managers to coach them. Organizations and their leaders must be adept in developing attitudes proactively and not just address them when they raise their ugly negative heads.

STATISTICS SAY IT ALL

In a recent study, managers and leaders across the country, and in fact globally were asked what they felt were their top 2 attributes that positioned employees to perform at their optimum level. Attitude was unremarkably and completely expected the number one choice at 65%.

Mark Murphy, the author of Hiring for Attitude and founder and CEO of Leadership IQ, a provider of this research and leadership training, conducted research on over 20,000 new hires. Of these, 46% failed within 18 months. More surprisingly than the failure rate was the fact when new hires failed, 89% of the time is for an attitude issue and only 11% of the time is for lack of skill.

Date Published: January 11, 2015

Running Time: 03:17 minutes

Hi this is John Millar. I’m the Naked Business Coach, stripping business back to the bare basics. I’ve got a very important byte size important bit of information for you today about developing a positive attitude in your workplace.

Now let’s face it, attitudes are tough. Developing positive ones sometimes almost feels impossible. But attitude can make or break your team or a company for that matter. So what does a good leader do? Organizations and their leaders must be adept in developing attitudes proactively and not just address them when they raise their ugly negative heads.

An attitude is one’s ability and capacity to overcome challenges that face them on a day to day basis. Most companies do not cultivate or provide in the area of attitude development nor help managers to coach them. In a recent study, managers and leaders across the country, and in fact globally were asked what they felt were their top 2 attributes that positioned employees to perform at their optimum level.

Attitude was unremarkably and completely expected the number one choice at 65%. In fact, Mark Murphy, the author of Hiring for Attitude and founder and CEO of Leadership IQ, a provider of this research and leadership training, conducted research on over 20,000 new hires. Of these, 46% failed within 18 months. More surprisingly than the failure rate was the fact when new hires failed, 89% of the time is for an attitude issue and only 11% of the time is for lack of skill. The attitude deficits that doomed these failed hires included a lack of coachability, low levels of emotional intelligence, motivation and temperament.

Now, what do we now do knowing all these thing?s Do we leave it up to the employee to monitor and change their own attitude without coaching or management help? If that worked, we would not be talking about this nor would you be reading books and magazine and newspapers.  We all know that attitudes take nurturing and a manager’s investment in creating positive ones with their team or pay long term dividends.

This is John Millar, I’m the Naked Business Coach, stripping business back to the bare basics. Go and have a look at our website ceo-ondemand.com.au or moreprofitlesstime.com and you’ll find a plethora of fantastic tools, resources and assistance in helping developing positive attitude in your business.\
