Managers can make or break company culture. Their impact hinges on the quality of their leadership abilities. Are their behaviors making employees feel happy and motivated, or the opposite? The article, 15 Ways Managers Actively Sabotage Workplace Culture, by Forbes Business Council, lists ineffective management qualities and actions that can sabotage workplace culture if not corrected quickly.
CultureWorx’ CEO, Dr. Donte Vaughn, who has decades of experience with organizational leadership and workforce management, is a member of the Forbes Business Council. In the article, he shares his experience with accountability and its mission-critical role in cultivating a desired company culture.
“A leader’s ability to actively sabotage an existing culture is only possible if there is no system to define, measure, manage, and drive accountability around the company’s optimal culture and associated business practices. To sabotage anything requires a leader to deliberately attempt to destroy, damage or obstruct how other leaders drive the culture. How? You promote what you permit!”
