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.

But you don’t have to let the ebb and flow of your energy at work inhibit your duty to proactively manage the quality of your work culture.
