How can leaders spot it when their employees fake it?

I came across a very interesting report today from Oxford Psychologists Press (OPP).  They have just reported on some European research they have conducted which makes the UK top of the European charts for 'workplace chameleons'.  According to the research 64% of UK workers (18.6 million) change their natural behaviour and put on a false personality when they walk into work.  The European average is apparently 50%, with the Netherlands at the bottom of the heap at 36%.  As you would expect, dear Hubbers, this got me thinking.
