Corporate Culture It is every corporation’s objective to want their workplace to be efficient, effective, productive, supportiveand team driven, engaging, respectful, open and friendly, and hopefully even fun. However, when people work together, especially where diversity of cultures, cognition and attitudes, that lead to tensions and issues often arise that can lead to disruptions in the workplace.
These types of tensions are common in most work environments, and defines the culture. It is vitalto prevent any minor issues from growing into a larger problems that can undermine the department’s effectiveness and be very unproductive.
How employees handle these issues defines the corporate culture. What are some typical issues at work:
1. personality conflicts – friction or frustration over different work ethics, styles and behaviors
2. meetings that are unproductive and a pitiableuse of their time
3. meetings where people do not speak openly afraid of repercussions
4. tensions between peers, management that lead to people avoiding each other or cause people to work around others
5. unprofessional and unethical behaviors and people not being held accountable for their actions
These, and other dilemmas, cause people to lose motivation, feel unproductive, feel frustrated and stressed, have a “give up” attitude and therefore seek a new job. Lignum has programs designed to change these dynamics and find new and healthierways of working together so that the team and individuals can re-establish an environment that promotes high performance and respectful team and individual interactions.
