Survey Says: Leaders Report on Key Workplace Issues in New Survey -- People and Feelings Beat Finance by 300 Percent
A survey of 135 employees and leaders identifies the most critical challenges facing organizations today are 70 percent about people -- finding the right ones, getting them doing the right work and setting the right conditions for performance. Responses show increasing concern with employee and customer feelings and urgent need to become better at the "soft" side.
In a changing business climate, what are the key challenges to organizational success? According to a new international survey, it's almost entirely a question of leading people and managing feelings.
Six Seconds, The Emotional Intelligence Network, invited leaders to identify the key challenges in the workplace today -- and particularly the "people side" of the equation. The survey explores top issues as well as employee attitudes and the role of emotional intelligence in solving those key issues.
The 2007 Workplace Issues Report finds that this year ...
* "Soft" issues such as finding and keeping talent are over 3 times as prevalent as "hard" issues such as finance.
* Leaders are twice as concerned about leadership than all other issues combined.
• Emotional intelligence and feelings of team- and non-team-members are among the most important resources an organization has in addressing challenges and reaching goals. Almost 90 percent of respondents identify EQ as highly important or essential to meeting their organization's top challenges
Responses come from team leaders to executives in a broad range of industries and organizations ranging from under 20 to over 10,000 people. 135 responses were tabulated, primarily from North America but also from every other continent.

Deep Release: Search Engines in the Year 2010
Enquiro releases a 60 minute presentation featuring a panel discussion with seven leading search engine experts.
An all-star panel of search engine and web user experience experts - including leading representatives from the search engines Google, Yahoo, MSN and Ask - has come together in one 60 minute event to share their visions of the future of search. They took questions from an audience and revealed their perspectives on such topics as search advertising, media-rich search results, user intent and social networks.
Panelists explain the directions their search engine innovation has recently taken, and where they may be headed. Moderator Gord Hotchkiss also shows results from Enquiro's eye tracking testing with Google, Yahoo, MSN's Live Search, and Ask. Images show, for example, how - due to changes on behalf of the engines - user scanning behavior has changed since the discovery of Google's Golden Triangle (top left corner) three years ago.
The current high pace of innovation in the search engines begs the question: what do the next three years hold for Google, Yahoo and others? Enquiro has also published a white paper titled Search Engine Results 2010 which examines trends such as the personalization of search results. Personalized results aim to better interpret the user's intent and can be based on factors such as site click-through rate and stickiness, search history, bookmarks, and community behavior. The paper also looks at "Universal Search" which blends search results with news items, video and images.
Panelists Marissa Mayer - VP, Search Products and User Experience, Google Larry Cornett - VP, Search Experience, Yahoo Justin Osmer - Senior Product Manager, Live Search, Microsoft Daniel Read - Senior VP of Site Product Management and User Experience, ASK Jakob Nielsen - User Advocate and Principal of Nielsen Norman Group Chris Sherman - Executive Editor, Search Engine Land Greg Sterling - Founding Principal, Sterling Market Intelligence
