The Gallup 12

The Gallup team interviewed over 80,000 managers in 400 companies to determine what great managers do differently. These 12 statements, (The Gallup Q12©) from Gallup’s pioneering research represent those practices that best predict employee and workgroup performance.

  5. My supervisor, or someone at work, seems to care about me as a person.
  6. There is someone at work who encourages my development.
  7. At work, my opinions seem to count.
  8. The mission or purpose of my company makes me feel my job is important.
