TINYpulse discovers how your employees are feeling, and performing
It’s widely known that when employees are satisfied with their jobs, they’re much more likely to be happy, more engaged, and more productive. Since successful companies are built on the backs of satisfied and motivated employees, it would seem like a no-brainer that organizations would care deeply about employee satisfaction.
Even if your team is made up solely of supremely talented individuals, there are always a few employees who stand out from the rest of the pack. According to the Harvard Business Review, these high-potential employees account for an average of 5% of any company’s workforce.

Since you don’t want to lose your best employees, it's critical that you do everything you can to ensure you fill managerial positions with the right people in the first place. As you go about your search for a new manager, keep in mind that great ones usually possess these 10 leadership qualities.
