Welcome to video 14 in this series of 34 two minutes videos detailing the concepts in my new book, Made to Thrive.
Made to Thrive outlines the 5 roles that a leader must undertake in order to transition from being only a good leader, to being a great leader. The 5 roles of a CEO or leader outlined in Made to Thrive are Accountability, Ambassador, Culture, Strategy, and Succession Planning.
Today we’re talking about the Ambassador section and in particular 2.4 All employees are welcomed by the CEO either physically or virtually within their first week of employment.
When people join a new company they’re excited by the potential that new company can have on their career and their personal situation.
They want to succeed!
And equally, we want the people to succeed, we want to give them the best chance to succeed in the organisation possible.
But as Marcus Buckingham put it, when that journey ends people don’t leave companies, people leave managers.
And so if people leave managers how can we set up a person to succeed in the best manner possible.
Well, according to doctor Gerald Bell he identified that there are 4 prides that a company must ensure a person is experiencing otherwise they will leave their job.
The first is proud of their product, the second is proud of their manager, the third, proud of their team, and fourth is proud of their company.
Again if a person isn’t experiencing those 4 prides, they will eventually leave their job.
But it’s about the leader dedicating a certain amount of time to people in their first week of employment to ensure that they’re welcomed.
So it begins to activate that fourth pride, which is proud of their company.
