Leadership Issue: Whingin’ and bitchin’ is what we do around here!
Complaints, ongoing negative attitudes, unhappy staff, people (secretly?) dashing onto SEEK during their breaks. Sound like your team? You’ve got issues, leadership issues!
Why? Because most teams or organisations that have this kind of problem tolerate it. They allow it to happen over time. Some even promote it. The ‘keep ‘em separate and keep control’ attitude.
Time to clean it all up! This is a leadership issue. And usually has not been addressed over time or even worse – the Leader is the source of the negative energy!!
Get a meaningful code of conduct happening. Not one that hangs on the wall and nobody ever reads, let alone lives by it. Ge your team to devise it.
Learn some key leadership lessons. Introduce rewards (for positive, inclusive behavior) and consequences of those who choose not to behave well. You may even have to move them on after following the right paths to help them.
Team conflict and ongoing staff problems are costing you money. A lot of it.
