Thomas Orths, Leadership Consultant

You may have the experience, knowledge, skill, and a long history of success; however, if you approach a new project, a meeting, a new job, an employee, your boss, or a customer with infected/negative energy, you should also be prepared to take responsibility for the consequences. Sometimes it is easy to see how others affect you, but many times you may not even realize the effect others are having on you. Some experts will claim energy is neither positive nor negative, rather all energy was neutral and only has the ability to take on the form in which you give it.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.  The reality is you do have the POWER to choose how you exert your own energy, but you do not always have the ability to prevent encountering others’ negative energy.  How you contribute to your professional environment is as important as what you contribute. As a part of a group in any organisation either a CEO or a Clerk, your energy can determine the success of a meeting, a workday or even your overall company.  Wake up!  Look in the mirror.  What are you contributing to your personal and professional life?  How do you protect those you are responsible for, your performance, as well as your overall company, to ensure that you and others have the positive, working environment You and Others deserve?… Positive & Negative Energy is contagious.

o A Gallup Organization study, based on interviews over 25 years with 12 million workers at 7,000 companies, found that an employee’s relationship with a manager/supervisor largely determines the length of an employee’s stay.

o A Saratoga Institute study, based on interviews with 20,000 employees who had recently left an employer, revealed that the main reason people quit is the manager’s behaviour.

o Corporate Leadership Council research found that a high-quality leader is the single most significant factor in attracting and retaining key talent.
