To motivate others and translate strategy into action is a key to build a level 5 leader or an exceptional CEO. However, many leaders overly use the tools for motivation as they believe “motivation” can enable a human being to overcome ANY obstacle. In fact, they mainly use the psychological part of the motivation at a basic level.
For example, to motivate a person to meet the challenges that the person has the potential but does not know is a great way to get a job done while exciting and keeping the best. Leadership style is one part. To know the talent at a personal level is essential. Without sufficient tools or the right direction, motivation alone can not only fail and delay the whole project but also lead to stress-related health issues like insomnia, burnout, heart attack and stroke. “Can He Handle the Job?” is a good example.
The lack of in-depth knowledge about talent is one common development need among executives. One root cause is that IQ, EQ, behaviors, and personality are not enough to know talent. Below is a comparison between traditional piecemeal approaches and the 6Q Approach.
In addition, studies found that workplace stress is also #1 cause of turnover. Turnover and healthcare costs both contribute to human capital costs.
