The interview series of the Bevermann Academy 06/2017 – Kelechi Onyele

Fact is, the latest Gallup study revealed that 70% of total employees are not emotionally committed to work, which is a result of the managerial behavior of direct supervisors. Wrong management style costs our German economy in total up to 105 billion € p.a. according to Gallup. Therefore, soft skills, emotional intelligence and empathy do not just seem to be hygiene factors.
