Expansive research by Gallup clearly shows that today’s worker is more:

  • purpose-driven
  • conversational
  • focused on strengths
  • development-oriented.

This chart shows the shift in worker focus.

These shifts in worker focus have existed since 2016, but the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated them just as any crisis tends to accelerate existing trends.

Considering the needs of today’s worker, today’s leader must:

1. Start with him/herself

  • Build awareness and intentional use of thoughts, words and actions to have a positive impact on others.
  • Seek new learnings and acknowledge vulnerabilities.

2. Inspire purposeful work

  • Create a compelling purpose and plan.
  • Build a bridge between today’s tasks and a brighter tomorrow.

3. Champion the culture

  • Champion a positive culture so employees can be seen, heard, grow and contribute.
  • Boldly address organizational systems that do not reinforce the desired culture.

4. Coach daily

  • Maintain a positive coaching mindset and practice positive coaching habits.
  • See employees’ potential and build upon their strengths.

5. Engage minds and hearts

  • Understand the human behind the employee.
  • Fulfill employee needs so they realize their potential.

6 .Facilitate excellent execution

  • Drive focus and accountability for delivering results.
  • Ensure collaboration and innovation.
