As a senior leader, there will be times when you might start to notice issues in your business.
Being acutely aware of these signs allows you to act in time and prevent a chain of consequences:
- Employees become disengaged and morale starts to drop
- Disengagement starts to set in, impacting performance and immobilising the business
- Impacts show in business results.
To prevent this happening, a great leader must recognise the unmistakable signs as soon as they present themselves, acknowledge there is an issue in the business and then take action to address them.

- Results and performance are diminished
- You try to make improvements, but they do not work
- You propose solutions, but they do not make an impact
- Your team stops listening to you
- People are not learning and growing
- You are not able to attract and retain top talent
- Employees are disengaged
- The commitment of your employees wavers
