It seems that we are continually working with the consequences of this dilemma.
In our day-to-day lives whether at work or in our home life!
I take the view that we all too often create the people we get!
Treat people badly and only the very few will come through at the other side still complete!
They all will have memories however.
Some will reflect and mirror the life you gave them. Others will spend a lifetime ensuring what you did will never happen to them or others again.
Much about business is about the “engaged and the disengaged” We label them like the clean and the unclean! We want them! AND not those!
Let us be clear – we create the environment and we choose to make it toxic or give them clean fresh air to breathe life, hope and energy.
Let’s not make it complicated!
The problem is that the damage we do is a reflection on us, and not the “victim” we created.
It is also produces the perception we deserve.
Too many companies talk about values when they do not understand what they really need to do to deliver them.
I believe people need to be given the opportunity to be the best version of them.
I believe that too many managers and others need to really reflect on what they espouse and who they really are.
All to often the real problem of the “values” gap of coworkers is not with those who we label.
Those senior executives who talk with “forked tongue” They are the ones who are killing your business and peoples confidence.
They are the real internal terrorists!
Remember we create the landscape!
