Greatest Asset = Employees


 "Employees are a company's greatest asset - they're your competitive advantage. You want to attract and retain the best; provide them with encouragement, stimulus, and make them feel that they are an integral part of the company's mission." - Anne M. Mulcahy

Safe and Trusting Environments


Successful leaders create safe environments where people trust—where they know people are there to protect them when they are vulnerable, where everyone is committed to making each other safe and better.

Resurrect and Transcend


 "Trauma fractures comprehension as a pebble shatters a windshield. The wound at the site of impact spreads across the field of vision, obscuring reality and challenging belief." - Jane Leavy

"The paradox of trauma is that it has both the power to destroy and the power to transform and resurrect." - Peter A. Levine

Worthiness


If company #managers do not have the ethical and moral framework to stop bullying, or if they fail to value their employees enough to stop bullying, the organization is not

a worthy employer.

#LeadersArentBullies

"To force a change, sometimes you need to stand up. You know what you're worth - rather than what your employer is paying you." - Alex Morgan
