Someone once said, "One is not paid for having brains, but for using them."
Unfortunately, many workers in companies today find that their brainpower is seriously underused.
When I taught MBA students at The University of Chicago, Booth School of Business I would ask my class, "How many of you think your brain was fully utilized at your last job?" Out of 40 students, typically one or two would raise their hands. Since Booth's students are among the best and brightest in the world, this is very sad.
In what ways are you unintentionally signaling to your employees to leave their brainpower at the door? This month's newsletter explores how companies undermine the return on their most important asset, people!
