We work with lots of leaders and teams to improve their performance, through better communication, improved decision-making, and leveraged strengths. We have a number of tools to address these challenges - and they work - but at the end of the day, it's all in the way clients carry them out: HOW client organizations communicate, or make decisions or acknowledge strengths - their attitude - makes all the difference.
Recent studies have shown that over 60% of employees experience incivility at work, and 40% are looking for other employment as a result. Pause for a moment to look around the room you're in right now: most of the people you see have been on the wrong end of a bad attitude at work, and almost half are job hunting because of it. Imagine what that's doing to the productivity of your organization.
To move your teams from conflict to collaboration, they have to be grounded in their larger purpose:
- WHO are we here to help?
- WHAT are we trying to achieve?
- And, most importantly, HOW am I showing up?
These are the anchors of civility and collaboration at work. And they'll even renew your passion for what you do.
So, what's the prevailing attitude where you work?
