There is a perfect storm going on in many workplaces today, but the mindset and skillset of leaders have not shifted or adapted.
Great bosses nurture truth-tellers, players from across the organization that will boldly tell leaders what’s going well and what’s not. And great bosses listen.
Fear in the workplace could result from harassment of many forms or even physical violence in extreme cases.
Sometimes leaders focus on training programs to try to fix specific problems they see in their work cultures.
The issue is that we humans do not often check whether our worldview is valid in today’s world. We simply embrace it as truth.
To what degree is your work culture respectful, validating, productive, and even fun? Most workplaces are not any of those things.
Changing an organization’s work culture is nearly simultaneously incredibly demanding and profoundly gratifying for senior leaders.
Leaders must build a solid foundation that ensures respect is as important as results in every corner of your organization.
The fact is that no one has ever taught us leaders how to proactively manage a work culture that values respect and results equally.
