The Essential Basics
Employees who trust the information shared by their managers are more willing to be led by them through periods of change.If what we say is not in sync with our body language then we are probably sending out mixed messages that lack credibility, cause confusion and mistrust.
According to Michael Grinder's research 70% of us in the western world are DOGs and 30% are CATS.
Statistically, more women are likely to be DOGS.
Statistically CATS tend to make it to the top, but they will not gain the loyalty of their doggy employees unless they know how to be approachable as well as credible.
The key to a more impactful performance is knowing how and when to use these qualities and we all have access to both sets.
