Culture Leadership Charge – Respectful Leadership

How are your team leaders perceived by team members in your department, region, or company?

The relationship team members have with team leaders drives team members’ perceptions of the work, of the company, of their peers, and of their customers.

A purposeful, positive, productive relationship boosts team member engagement, service, and performance. A dismissive, demeaning, or discounting relationship erodes those three desired outcomes.

I spent 15 years in non-profit management as an executive and director. Over that time I had a couple of great bosses, quite a few good bosses, and too many lousy bosses.

In today’s three-minute episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I describe three of my lousy bosses’ behaviors and outline what my great bosses did to generate trust, respect, and dignity across our organizations.

My Culture Leadership Charge series features short (two-to-three-minute) videos that describe proven culture leadership and servant leadership practices that boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams, departments, regions, and even your entire company.

Each episode’s “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization – not just leaders – to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated respectfully at all times.
