Story to tell in the infographic
In partnership with Harvard Business Review we launched a proprietary study called “The Human Leader” which looked at the positive effects of compassionate leadership on the employee experience. A call to have a ‘human world of work’, the results demonstrate that when leaders balance compassion with business wisdom, they’re able to do hard things in a human way. When a leader has the right mix of compassion (kindness) and wisdom (honesty), the result is employees that are more satisfied, engaged, and committed, who perform better and are at less risk of burnout. Between now and the end of the year, we want to publish bi-monthly mini-reports on The Human Leader. They will be infographic-focused, each of which will highlight a different insight that has emerged from the research. This brief for the first installment is specific to the details above on compassionate leadership.
Data to include in the infographic
SECTION 1: - 21% of employees say they have experienced destructive leadership in last 6months - 12% of CEOs exhibit psychopathic traits - 40% of people work for someone they consider a “bad” leader - 25% of people feel their career is limited because of boss’s poor leadership - 17% of people say they would prefer a new boss over a raise - 75% of Americans say “their boss is the most stressful part of their day” - 1 in 2 people have quit a job to get away from a leader/manager SECTION 2: - See attachment 1 (bar graphs) - These are meant to just show the categories of outcomes (x-axis, i.e., job satisfaction, etc) and the differences in percentage points (y-axis). We do NOT want a bar chart style, rather we want something that is more elaborated and visually animated. And above all, we want it to showcase the multiplier effect of “Wisdom + Compassion” - Please rename labels: o “Employees rating leaders high on compassion”: Change to “A compassionate but unwise leader, Caring Avoidance” o “Employees rating leaders high on wisdom”: Change to “A wise but uncompassionate leader, Uncaring Execution” o “Employees rating leaders high on combination”: Change to “A compassionate and wise leader, Wise Compassion” SECTION 3: - The general framework of Wise Compassionate leadership will be illustrated with a 2x2 matrix (see attachment 2). - Please amend to fit with design/brand guidelines - Ideally, showing a linkage between the different quadrant locations: o Quadrant 1 (Caring Avoidance) = “A compassionate but unwise leader” o Quadrant 4 (Uncaring Execution) = “A wise but uncompassionate leader” o Quadrant 2 (Wise Compassion) = “A compassionate and wise leader” o Quadrant 3 (Ineffective Indifference) = not shown in bar graph; represented as the 0% mark in attachement 1 bar graph
Elements to include in the infographic
We are open to any and all possible data visualizations, charts and graphs. For us, we’ll be measuring quality and success of the submissions based on the various visualizations that present the most compelling story.
Layout and Style The infographic layout should be a mix of data graphics (eg. pie charts, bar graphs, percentages etc) and illustrations. A ratio of 3/4 data and 1/4 illustrations. Examples that we like are the ECO layout and Iceberg layout. These examples show a great mix of data rich information paired with illustrations (attachments 3 and 4). PLEASE USE THESE AS ROUGH GUIDES, WE DO NOT WANT ANY ICEBERG REPRESENTATIONS. Colour The main colourway should be the Potential Project primary brand colours. For example, using a navy blue background with graphic elements set in teal, seafoam, yellow and light blue. The tertiary colours can be used as accent colours but make sure they are used less than the primary colours. Copy Titles set in Sangleu Versailles. Subtitles and Body Copy set in Graphik Delivery files Illustrator AI file with editable text A note on illustrations Where possible avoid using illustrations of people. If people are used, representing diversity is very important. Make sure BIPOC and women are well-represented. All body types and abilities can be depicted.
