Ruining Team Morality - 5 Easy Steps

Look at your own organization and team, how many of these reflect your culture?

“Take the shot” - is putting the gun to your head! No risk taking here! And if you fail - failure is not tolerated!

Passion for work - WHY?!? You’ll get the same pay raise as everyone else! When you start out with more go-get-ers than slackers and they recieve the same amount of raises you’ll end up with more slackers!

Personal accountability - Only to the clique or the upper boss are you accountable. It’s a good thing the boss is a clique member as well!

Job Clarity - There is none. If management doesn’t like you they give you only half the information and watch you fail. This is dispite you asking for additional clarity!

Job Fit - Get the person management wants (or recommended by the buddy system) and train them how to do the job they are hired to do. And if that doesn’t work out, hire a contractor to do the job and the employee to boss the contractor around.
