What is the secret? What do leaders who are highly-skilled at delivering results and building positive relationships do that is different? To find the answer, we analyzed our expansive database and discovered six "behavioral bridges" that differentiated these leaders. (A behavioral bridge is a capability that enables leaders to achieve both results and positive relationships.) The frustration for many leaders is that an emphasis on one of these capabilites may negatively impact the other. For example: when leaders push too hard to deliver superior results, it can negatively impact their relationships with team members. Other leaders attempt to build a positive team environment, only to find that projects lag behind schedule and results suffer. These "behavior bridges" are the secret to skills that accomplish both outcomes. Join Dr. Joe Folkman as he shares his exciting research findings and reveals these powerful behavioral bridges!

There is a secret to becoming a more likable leader. It doesn’t have to do with how tall and charming you are, or how often you give employees a raise. In fact, we have evidence that the majority of the behaviors displayed by the most likable leaders have to do with the way they interact with employees on a day-to-day basis. But first, does being liked by your employees even matter? In a study of 51,836 leaders, we identified 27 who were rated at the bottom quartile in likability but were in the top quartile for overall leadership effectiveness. That equates to approximately 1 in 2000 cases that a boss who is highly unlikable appears in the top quartile of overall effectiveness. Apparently, being liked by your employees does matter…a great deal! So, if you choose to be more likable, what can you do? Join Jack and Joe to learn the 7 key actions that our research shows will substantially increase your likability score! Register and attend the webinar and you’ll have the opportunity to take our complimentary “Likability Self-assessment."
