“We allow business leaders to dictate things based on who they like, who they golfed with the last weekend, and things like that when it should be: ‘Who is doing the work and who is a benefit to our work environment and our culture?'” Carla Patton, HR Executive
We’re Only Human — Episode 101
One of the challenges in the last year is that the pandemic showed the cracks in the relationships created by poor leadership. In an office environment, there are enough opportunities to smooth over mediocrity from a leadership perspective, but when things are virtual, those kinds of behaviors like favoritism or simply being inept become magnified.
In this episode, Carla Patton encourages us to stop accepting mediocrity from our leaders and hold them to a higher standard. It’s not just about business results–it’s about the kind of environment they create for their team and whether that environment encourages performance or hinders it.
