Sante Fe, NM – Abraham Maslow, known for his research on self-actualizing individuals and his Hierarchy of Needs Theory, stated, “The only happy people I know are ones who are working well at something they consider important.” Self-actualizers get up each morning eager to get to work.
Yet today, surveys have shown that 87 percent of the workforce remains disengaged. In an increasingly globalized economy, this crisis of leadership has led to a global epidemic, demanding leaders who truly care and want to transform organizations into environments where people can self-actualize.
Donna Karaba is the founder and president of Karaba Consulting, an executive coaching firm dedicated to promoting authentic and enlightened leadership. As an executive coach, Donna works with leaders of organizations at the executive level -- CEOS, COOs, vice presidents – encouraging them to become more self-aware and empower the individuals around them to achieve their greatest potential.
“Some people are really good at what they do, but as you grow and develop in an organization and become a higher level leader, those skills aren’t as important as your ability to work with others as well as develop and mentor people,” says Donna.
Donna says organizations are made up of people who want to provide value. When we care about their growth, their passions, their goals, their connection to the overall mission of the company, we will see bottom line results.
“I believe the value of a leader is to tie in their employee’s passions and goals with the company’s mission,” says Donna. “If people can be passionate at work they’re going to be so much more effective, happy and loyal.”
