UW-Green Bay professor and Fish Creek resident Prof. Phil Clampitt believes you may have to change your leadership style to adapt to your evolving workplace.
Gallup recently reported that 15 percent of employees in the United States are truly engaged in their workplace, adding that they would work harder if they felt more appreciated. It is a trend that started well before the pandemic sent many employees to remote roles within their organizations. It was those realizations that led Clampitt to join forces with Bob DeKoch to write the book Leading with Care in a Tough World: Beyond Servant Leadership. The term servant leadership refers to a philosophy that focuses on the growth and well-being of others. Clampitt says getting positive results for your organization and your employees goes hand-in-hand.
Clampitt has written several books on leadership over the years, including Transforming Leaders into Progress Makers and Embracing Uncertainty. Both of those books he also wrote with DeKoch.
