‘The Mind of the Leader’ Book Launch Event – Brussels, 19 September 2018
Jacqueline Carter and Rasmus Hougaard, authors of new book, “The Mind of the Leader”, published by Harvard Business Press in March 2018, will be on hand and present their key messages at the launch event supported by Generali Employee Benefits – GEB.
According to the authors’ research, organizations and leaders are not meeting employees’ basic human needs of finding meaning, purpose, connection, and genuine happiness in their work. Furthermore, there appears to be a disconnect between the perceptions of leaders, who think they do a good job, and of their charges, who beg to disagree.
- 77% of leaders think they do a good job of engaging their people
- 88% of employees say their leaders do a bad job with engagement
- 65% of employees would forego a pay raise to see their leaders fired
The authors offer “a radical, yet practical solution. To solve the leadership crisis, organizations need to put people at the center of their strategy. They need to develop managers and executives who lead with three core mental qualities: Mindfulness, Selflessness, and Compassion.”
The event, targeted at senior leaders, is scheduled on 19 September 2018 from 17:00 to 19:00 in Brussels, Belgium, at the Hotel Steigenberger Wiltcher’s; 71 Avenue Louise/ Louizalaan 71; B-1050 Brussels.
