75% of decision makers say innovation is a top 3 priority.
80% of the workforce reports being disengaged.
Something doesn't add up.
How do leaders spot innovators and create environments where they thrive?
Organizations spend tremendous resources finding and hiring the best, most qualified people. Globally, though, up to 85% of employees report being disengaged. Internal innovators express a disconnect: They feel they do not fit in current organizational cultures and seek environments where they’re able to use a fuller range of expertise and energies.
How can we measure the gap between current working practices and the desired environment so leaders can close the gap? Inspired by Frederic Laloux’s Reinventing Organizations, 131 respondents at Deutsche Bahn illustrated that evolutionary paradigms can assist leaders to clearly visualize that gap and identify intrinsically motivated individuals.
