A democratic mindset is part of an overall corporate culture – a set of shared rules and norms developed over time. It may not be required for an organization’s success, although from most typical employees’ perspectives, a general sense of democracy is a good thing. People want their voice to be heard.
We saw a marked improvement over last year’s survey on the question of whether leadership is democratic. Almost two-thirds (65%) of respondents gave a positive result – ‘always’ or ‘usually’.
The global stats are mirrored in the USA, where 14% said their organization was ‘always’ democratic and 47% answered ‘usually’.
