What's the secret to getting staff on board?

It is a privilege when we are asked to come into an organisation to help deliver change or get employees engaged with a company’s set of messages. As survey providers we don’t implement change, instead we act as ‘investigators’, carefully unearthing the main drivers to get staff on-board and understanding the hurdles companies face to deliver change.

Is Trust or Fear Driving Your Organizational Culture?

Is Trust or Fear Driving Your Organizational Culture? | Harmonious and Balanced Workplace | Scoop.it

Don Dea's curator insight, April 18, 2013 9:57 PM

As an individual or team within a larger organization, it’s crucial to ask, “What am I doing?” and “Where am I going?” as well as, “Do I trust you that we’re heading in the same direction?” The goal is to achieve organizational reciprocity – or citizenship – a contract between employer and employee to support one another.

In other words, it extends beyond trust between team members; whether or not team members trust one another. It is important that team members trust that they are headed in the same direction as the organization, and that the organization values the same things that they do as individuals.

What is the antithesis of trust?  FEAR!  And the number one goal for organizational effectiveness, as Dr. Deming has stated, is to “Drive Out Fear!”  The bottom line impact of fear in an organization is that it stifles new ideas and growth.

Trust is vital to building communication within an organization. Team members need to know that they are free to communicate up and down, to ask questions, and even disagree openly. This opens up the door for the team to realize there are certain goals which need to be reached, and openly and honestly discuss whether they have attained them.  If not, what must they do to attain them?

Leading With Purpose: Impact Means More Than Your Bottom Line

Leading With Purpose: Impact Means More Than Your Bottom Line | Harmonious and Balanced Workplace | Scoop.it
Something that I think about a lot these days is the notion of being “impactful.” Entrepreneurs often get caught up on making the most amount of money, figuring out how to squeeze out additional margin, or improving operative leverage.

Let’s put aside all the chatter about Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In, including the obligatory mentions of the obvious differences in circumstance between its well-meaning author and most of the working women who stand to benefit from its advice.

Company Organizational Culture: Common Mistakes

Company Organizational Culture: Common Mistakes | Harmonious and Balanced Workplace | Scoop.it

Company organizational culture is debated, celebrated and, in some cases, misguided. Companies don’t often connect the dots from the simple ways employees interact with not just customers but also the larger company.
