Event Description:

TRANSFORMING A CULTURE OF "NICE" INTO ONE OF RESULTS


Ever notice yourself or your team side-stepping real issues, soft-pedaling critical feedback, or avoiding the conversation all together? Many leaders and companies today admit to suffering from a culture of “nice,” where people are afraid to speak openly or confront the behavior of others for fear they may “rock the boat.” And who doesn’t want to be considered nice? Being nice is a worthy attribute. But when “nice” starts to define your company culture, it is time to shift gears.

A culture of “nice” lends itself to a host of challenges including lack of trust, higher turnover, and lower productivity—none of which are actually “nice.” Instead leaders are aiming to keep top talent, build trust, provide their employees with purpose, increase value alignment, and help empower their teams to be as efficient as possible. Technology can support these goals, and ultimately they all depend on strong, open communication.

How do you cultivate a culture where people are driving results in a way that strengthens relationships and builds organizational trust?

Join Harriette Schumacher, of Big Leap Leadership Inc. to explore 3 conversations you can start having now to transform that culture of “nice” into a culture of results. A culture where employees and leaders alike are talking about what matters most with courage and skill.

In this one-hour lunch and learn, you’ll discover:

  • The organizational impact of a culture of “nice."

  • How to have 3 conversations that will help build a culture of results.

  • Why building your team's skillset around communication is no longer just a nice-to-have.

  • What your team stands to gain, and what it takes to get there.
