The 12 elements of great leadership

To identify the elements of worker engagement. Gallup conducted many thousands of interviews in all kinds of organizations, at all levels, in most industries, and in many countries. These 12 statements -  the Gallup Q -  emerged from Gallups pioneering research as those that best predict employee and workgroup performance.

1. I know what is expected of me at work.
2. I have the materials and equipment I need to do my work right. 
3. At work, I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day.
4. In the last seven days, I have received recognition or praise for doing good work.
5. My supervisor, or someone at work, seems to care about me as a person. 
6. There is someone at work who encourages my development.
7. At work, my opinions seem to count.
8. The mission or purpose of my com company makes me feel my job is important.
9. My associates or fellow employees are committed to doing quality work.
10. I have a best friend at work.
11. In the last six months, someone at work has talked to me about my progress. 
12. This last year, I have had opportunities at work to learn and grow.
Think of great team experiences you had and count how many of those were there (or bad team experiences that those 12 were not there). Which ones?


  1. my dear leader!

    there was only one point (number 2) that was not in place sometimes (if to consider my problems with laptop and constant reducing of marketing costs ;)))

    the rest was there in our Big Bang ;))))

  2. Happy to hear ;)

    (Yeah, number 2 was a hard one... Mari-Anna with the printer and all, hehe)
