When Employer Trust is Lost
19 Jun, 2018. 0 Comments. Managing Conflict, Respectful Leadership. Posted By: Gregg Ward
Last year, I was leading a program on respect and trust with a dozen mid-level managers at a new client’s headquarters, when I found myself in a strange situation: everyone stopped talking. I was covering the four conditions that must be met for a relationship to have a high level of trust — competence, openness & honesty, concern for others’ best interests, and reliability — and I mentioned that employer trust among its employees is crucial to a healthy company culture. At that point, the mood of the room turned very cold, and everyone in the class clammed up. “Was…

A Healthy Company Culture Starts with a Blueprint for Success
5 Jun, 2018. 0 Comments. Managing Conflict, Respectful Leadership. Posted By: Gregg Ward
In my 25 years of experience working with top industry and government organizations, I know one thing is true: a company with happy employees and a healthy company culture didn’t get there by accident. Its leaders have carefully nurtured and curated their work environments to develop a sustainable foundation of responsive, respectful leadership that significantly improves their chances of long-term success. Studies show that a company culture based in respect, compassion, and merit, also has better collaboration, lower turnover, higher levels of trust, and greater willingness to go the extra mile among employees. In a recent Inc. article, Adam Robinson,…

Modeling Respectful Behavior: Whose Job Is It?
22 May, 2018. 0 Comments. Leadership Presence, Managing Conflict, Respectful Leadership. Posted By: Steve Saars
When I’m working with a new client and making a case for modeling respectful behavior in the workplace, there is an inevitable hurdle to clear first: acknowledging there is a problem, so leaders stop passing the buck on accountability. If I’ve heard this complaint once, I’ve heard it a thousand times. Every time I show managers and leaders the data that clearly demonstrates our workplaces are becoming increasingly disrespectful, someone starts to complain, saying “Aren’t employees just too sensitive these days? Managers and supervisors are always having to walk on eggshells.” I’ll admit, I find this question challenging, because not…

Build Your Business with Internal Leadership Development

For any manager, it’s a real shame to lose good people on your team. Employee turnover is also very expensive. Most companies invest thousands of dollars in hiring and training, not to mention loss of productivity during each transition. Yet, more than a third of employers are expecting to lose employees to competitors this year due to dissatisfaction over salary and advancement opportunities, according to a recent Glassdoor survey. Another study estimates that for every 10 months an employee is stagnant with no promotion or raise, they’re 1 percent more likely to leave the company. These statistics are clear evidence…

Disrespectful Behavior at Work: When the Facts Offend
18 Apr, 2018. 0 Comments. Managing Conflict, Respectful Leadership. Posted By: Steve Saars
Recently, I gave a talk at a major HR conference where I referred to data demonstrating that, while the frequency of and sensitivity to disrespectful behavior at work has been steadily increasing over the last 20 years, there appears to have been an uptick following the election of Donald Trump. I concluded this segment of my talk by saying, “I think we can agree that from an HR perspective, this [increased disrespect] is not a good thing.” A few weeks later, while reviewing the written evaluations, I noticed one participant wrote that my statement was offensive, saying I had “disrespected…
