According to a report published by BusinessNewsDaily, nearly 84% of all American employees were planning to search for new jobs in 2011. This reflects a significant increase from the 60% who were planning to change jobs in 2010. Only 5% of the respondents to the survey wanted to stick with their current job. According to Douglas Matthews, President of career-management agency Right Management, “This finding is more about employee dissatisfaction and discontent than projected turnover. Employees’ trust has been seriously shaken and there is a general lack of confidence in leaders. So this is a wake-up call to management.”

Employees are suffering mainly because of the weak job market, recession, and disruptive workforce and economic changes. That is why excellence in leadership is crucial to achieving sustainable success today.
Great Leadership can Improve the Quality of the Workplace Experience for Your Employees.
Today, leaders are operating in the toughest business environment, where margins are tight and decisions need to be made quickly. Great leaders demonstrate their business ethics and culture in their everyday work. A key example of great leadership can be seen in the Ford Motor Company. The organization has transformed from a struggling company to the most admired automaker under the leadership of Alan Mulally, the CEO. One leader that business owners across the world look up to is Steve Jobs, the co-founder and former CEO of Apple. Everyone at Apple, from the top to the bottom, focused on producing easy to use, well-designed products used as means of entertainment or tools of productivity under the leadership of Steve Jobs.

What these examples go to show is that it is the quality of leadership that determines the fate of an organization. A great leader motivates his people to give their best, he guides them in the right direction to achieve the goals and vision of the business. Here are some other reasons why you need great leadership skills in today’s business environment.
