Leadership Snake Eyes: Building Healthy Relationships in the Workplace
Leaders must begin to pay closer attention the next time they step into their work environment. They might be surprised to learn how every aspect of the workplace experience is being controlled or influenced not by the house as in casino speak, but by the employee as in lounge speak. From the rules governing workflow to the white noise throughout the culture, to the colors posted throughout the workplace, employees carefully design the workplace with the sole aim of ensuring they are comfortable. This could lead to unhealthy organizations that continue to operate as status-quo environments with the employee-base culture working to ensure it remains a part of their everyday functioning. We call this “Leadership Snake Eyes,” but it doesn’t have to be the case if leaders are willing to use a different approach allowing everyone to win in the end!
