You can walk down just about any hallway in corporate America and here a group of employees talking to each other with the following statement: did you hear what happened…?
So often there are interactions inside corporate America that literally become urban legends. Every organization in corporate America wants a positive workplace culture but really we need to go at this from the ground up. We cannot simply do workplace or engagement surveys and not position our managers or employees to have positive interactions with one another.
Here is the major case in point: a manager calls an employee into corporate America to their office. What's the employees typical response or thought? It's 99.9% of the time "uh oh what did I do wrong?"
A culture starts with every interaction employees have with one another as well as managers have with their employees. If managers cannot coach employees to have these interactions with one another or more importantly have their own interactions with employees that are developmental and delivered through coaching we are leaving our workplace cultures to chance!
