The Organizational Intelligence Institute (OII) Launches Research To Uncover The Causes and Impact of Disengaged Leaders

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- It is well researched that employees who are not engaged cost companies hundreds of millions of dollars per year.  What is not well understood is the broader impact disengaged leaders have upon employee engagement as well as company performance.  Even more troubling is lack of research and insights on the primary factors that enable or inhibit leader engagement.

Salvatore Falletta, Executive Vice President and Managing Director for the Organizational Intelligence Institute, shares that "When it comes to increasing employee engagement levels, more often than not – organizations tend to employ a one-size-fits-all approach, yet the primary drivers of engagement (e.g., relationship with the direct manager, rewards and recognition, growth and development, opportunities for advancement and promotion) are likely to differ by various workforce segments (e.g., executives, aspiring senior leaders, mid-level managers, and front-line employees) and other variables. What we hope to uncover from this research are the real factors that drive leader engagement and just maybe, if we're lucky, some of the hidden motives and aspirations of leaders. The value proposition for those currently in leadership roles or emerging leaders who aspire to lead people and organizations are likely to be significantly different."

The Organizational Intelligence Institute ( will be launching a research survey on October 6th 2014 to gain insight into the factors that drive leader engagement and how these drivers of engagement differ by job level, role, function, generational cohort, geography, and senior leadership aspirations (i.e., those who aspire to be C-level executive leaders).
