What If There Was Another Way?
While no company is perfect, high performing organizations have a clear understanding of where they are going and everyone understands how they support the effort to get there. People believe that their co-workers’ intentions are good and give them the benefit of the doubt even when things don’t go well. Leaders address more than just the symptoms of problems, they collaborate with others to get to the root cause and take action with accountability to the rest of the team. Employees are invited and encouraged to use their voice and to take action. People are highly productive and still have fun!
