Visier - Talent Acquisition

Unfortunately, performance doesn’t always go as planned. Sometimes employees hit roadblocks, are suffering from personal issues or are feeling unengaged at work.

What Do Honesty, Integrity, and Trust Mean in Leadership? - DecisionWise

DecisionWise

I spend part of almost every day coaching leaders through feedback they have received from a 360 degree feedback survey. I’ve found it heartening that consistently the area of greatest concern to these leaders is Integrity and Trust. If the scores are high, the leader typically expresses how pleased or satisfied they are with the scores. Conversely, if the scores are even slightly below the norm, the leader is often so unnerved that he or she can hardly see anything else in the report.

Oops, you did it again. You know what I’m talking about. You made the wrong choice and hired the wrong person.
