Much of what’s happening in our organizations today is nothing more than a thinly veiled blame game. Colleagues gather in post mortem meetings to “find out what went wrong.” Managers use goals and accountability as weapons to dole out punishment when things change unexpectedly. And sooner or later, we all find ourselves accidentally contributing to a culture of duck-and-cover as we create ever more complex forms of the argument that “I did my part, I can’t control everything.”
There’s nothing wrong with post mortems, accountability, or clear boundaries, of course. But with everyone working hard to get the work done but just a little harder to ensure the buck stops somewhere else, we all find ourselves stuck in a world of increasing stress and decreasing output.
How can training help to fix this? In this multimedia webinar, you’ll explore through video and interaction just how bestselling author and award-winning management consultant Ed Muzio teaches the building blocks of looking forward culture. Train people to move away from blame and toward a clear-eyed view of what’s likely to happen next, and you will have made a contribution to your entire organization usually reserved for higher-level leaders and expert consultants. The truth is, you may be better positioned than they are to make this happen – you just need to know how!
