America’s Leadership Exodus
Posted on February 25, 2015 by Don MacPherson.
To become extraordinary, organizations need leaders who can provide a vision, coach employees, hold themselves and others accountable, and execute strategy. In short, an organization without leadership is doomed to fail. If the results of a recent study by Modern Survey are any indication, America is in a very vulnerable position.
It turns out that 33% of leaders at organizations with 100+ employees are currently looking for a job at another organization. That’s one-third of all your leaders actively looking to leave! To provide some context, just two years ago – when Modern Survey began collecting data on the item “I am currently looking for a job at another organization” – only 22% of leaders agreed. The percentage of leaders looking has steadily climbed since Spring 2013. At the same time, individual contributors have stayed rather stable ranging from 22% to 25%.
Those are the numbers…and those numbers are very scary if you are an executive, HR professional, or business owner. So, what can you do about it? That’s the subject of Modern Survey’s April webinar – “America’s Leadership Crisis: Is an Exodus Imminent?” scheduled for April 7th at noon Central.

Modern Survey measures the employee life-cycle – from onboarding effectiveness to an employee’s exit – for our clients. Twice annually we conduct a study of the U.S. workforce to learn how engaged employees are, how effectively they are being trained, and how they feel about the direction of their organization.
