Are there people in your organisation you regard as invaluable based on their qualifications, knowledge and/or technical ability?
And do you let them get away with poor attitude or behaviours because they are too “valuable” to lose?
I come across such people everywhere I have worked and in clients I have consulted too.
What we fail to see is how these behaviours impact others and directly damage your organisations culture.
The Great Resignation (or the Australian version “The Great Reshuffle”) is very real and one of the prime reasons people are changing jobs in droves is they have come to the realisation that they do not have to put up with a negative unhealthy culture.
They no longer have to put up with assholes.
As a leader, are you fostering a culture that makes such behaviour acceptable?
