Lack of Accountability
Most workplaces are all too familiar with these common people problems and they generate overwhelming amounts of stress and anxiety that will play havoc with performance, productivity and working relationships.
An epidemic of work stress
Work cultures today are defined by increasing stress, conflict and anxiety and the costs are staggering, resulting in negative (sometimes severe) consequence for both human and financial outcomes.
Organizations are reporting increased rates of absenteeism, stress leave, formal complaints, workplace bullying, and workplace accidents. This contributes to paint a picture that costs Canadian organizations billions of dollars every year.
And those are just the costs we can concretely measure.
The negative impact on the health and wellbeing of people is immeasurable as the stress and anxiety of unmanaged people problems takes its toll and continues to generate decreased levels of engagement and wellbeing.
It doesn’t have to be this way
And that is what great leaders do. They understand their primary role is to support and inspire others to thrive in both their work and in their work relationships.
Do you know what conflict is costing you?
The cost of unmanaged conflict is staggering, resulting in negative (sometimes severe) consequence for both human and financial outcomes. Assessing and addressing conflict in timely and effective ways is a learned skillset and a primary responsibility of leadership. The cost is too high to continue to leave conflict unmanaged.
Let us help you move the needle on managing conflict in your organization
Do you find yourself delaying or avoiding difficult conversations?
One of the non-negotiable abilities of great leadership is the willingness to initiate the conversations that matter. Yet all too often our fear of engaging in the uncomfortable and edgy dialogs that are necessary to solve tough problems generates avoidance and/or denial – and we wait, and we hope for things to feel easier or clearer. And the issues persist – almost always getting worse. Being able to address problems and conflicts in timely, direct and caring ways is a non-negotiable leadership skillset.
Contact us to learn about best practices and proven methodologies to generate wildly successful conversations, even with the most difficult of topics.
How are you maximizing human potential?
It is up to the leader to be creating the conditions for everyone to do their best work every day in ways that yield optimal results and leaves everyone feeling positive about their contributions. This is the non-negotiable need of the modern organizational culture – a workplace where employees feel they make a difference and enjoy a good sense of well being in their efforts. This must be the number one priority of the modern leader – increasing your capacity around the human element so others can thrive.
