Culture Leadership Charge – A Crisis of Respect

We face a crisis of respect and civility in the US today.

This crisis is not unique to Americans but a recent study describes the huge concerns many Americans have with civility and respect in our country right now.

The biggest recent story is the exposure of some Hollywood producers and directors for years of sexual harassment and sexual assault of female actors. The #MeToo hashtag has exploded with women across all industries and countries sharing their experiences of sexual harassment and assault by men in power.

Incivility and disrespect play out every day in our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces, politics, and social media networks around the globe.

The 2017 survey of Civility in America, an annual study undertaken by Weber Shandwick, Powell Tate, and KRC Research, found that the belief that the US has a major civility problem is at a record high – nearly 70% of respondents agreed with that statement. 75% of Americans believe that incivility has risen to crisis levels. 73% feel that the US is losing stature as a civil nation.

Only 22% of respondents believe civility in America will get better in the coming years.

Disrespect and incivility erode trust, performance, service, and proactive problem solving – in our neighborhoods and workplaces.

There is a solution to this crisis of respect and civility.

In today’s three-minute episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I describe this simple, actionable solution in detail.

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.

Culture Leadership Charge – Culture as a Competitive Advantage

Three million people quit their jobs in the US in April, 2017. Three million.

The improving economy has resulted in a 4.3 percent unemployment rate in the US. It’s likely that those folks who quit had a number of job openings to consider.

Why are these numbers important to leaders today? These indicators place greater demands on leaders to create purposeful, positive, productive work cultures, without delay.

A work environment that treats everyone with trust, respect, and dignity will inspire engaged, talented team members to stay with your company – and will attract even more engaged, talented team members to your cool culture.

In today’s three-minute episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I describe the three vital elements workplaces must demonstrate to boost retention and employee engagement.

Culture Leadership Charge – Don’t Tolerate Bad Behaviors

Leaders must champion their desired culture, every day. To create and maintain a work environment where everyone is treated with trust, respect, and dignity in every interaction, leaders must model those behaviors as well as ensure others model those behaviors.

The problem in many organizations around the globe is that leaders pay attention only to results and profits. They don’t notice when people behave badly while pursuing results and profits.

Left to our own foibles, we humans don’t behave well as a species in the work place. We engage in politics and gossip. We withhold information so others don’t perform as well as we do. We celebrate our own traction while eroding the traction – and confidence – of others.

Those bad behaviors inhibit engagement, consistent performance, proactive problem solving, and serving customers well.

Those bad behaviors tear people down rather than building them UP. Bad behavior erodes positive relationships.

Great leaders don’t tolerate bad behavior.

In today’s episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I share the importance of setting high standards for performance and for relationships – and I outline a proven approach for ensuring desired behaviors occur daily.

My Culture Leadership Charge series features short (two-to-three-minute) segments that describe proven culture 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.

Culture Leadership Charge – Be Present

img_0454aHow present are you with others in your life? If you’re typing something, watching something, doing something, etc. while interacting with someone, you’re not fully present.

In today’s episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I explain how you can make people feel trusted, honored, and respected, in every interaction, by being present.

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

Culture Leadership Charge: Do more GOOD

Welcome to my new video series called “Culture Leadership Charge.”

In these short (less-than-three-minute) segments, I present proven culture leadership practices that can boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams.

The “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated with trust, respect, and dignity in every interaction.

You don’t have to be a formal leader to apply these practices – everyone is a culture leader (for better or worse)!

Today’s charge is titled “You’ll do more GOOD if you aim to SERVE more than you aim to PLEASE.”

It is difficult to please everyone – and that’s not the leader’s job. The leader must clarify the organization’s present day servant purpose, specify values and behaviors to ensure cooperation and team work, and hold everyone accountable for both values and results.
