When we/they occurs within an organization, we shut down the possibility of achieving a great culture.
This week, Dr. Pilcher tackles a subconscious barrier to uplifting our organizations: we/they behavior. She explains the effects of we/they on our team’s performance and results and provides insight into how to stop using this default communication for good. The results can be dramatic, imagine a positive culture where people take ownership. This episode addresses questions, such as:
- What is we/they and how does it affect our culture?
- How can we avoid pointing fingers?
- What are alternative ways of communicating a message?
A We/They culture occurs when someone positions themselves in a positive light by making someone else "the bad guy." This occurs when there is a situation that may not have a pleasant or appealing outcome and the leader choses to place blame, rather than own the situation and work through a solution.
In Results That Last, Studer teaches leaders in every industry how to apply his tactics and strategies to their own organizations to build a corporate culture that consistently reaches and exceeds its goals.
