Many leaders are convinced they have an open environment that encourages employees to speak up and are shocked when they learn that employees are holding back. Employees have ideas and want to be heard. Leadership wants to hear them. Too often, however, employees and leaders both feel that no one cares about making things better. The disconnect typically only widens over time, with both sides becoming more firmly entrenched in their viewpoints.
From executives complaining that their teams don’t contribute ideas to employees throwing up their hands that their input is never sought–company culture is the culprit. Courageous Cultures provides an easy-to-follow road map to build a high-performance, high-engagement culture around sharing ideas, solving problems, and rewarding contributions from all levels.
Karin Hurt has over two decades of experience in customer service, sales, and human resources. David Dye has over two decades of experience leading teams, building organizations, and working with Boards of Directors to transform their effectiveness.
