"Managers tend to blame their turnover problems on everything under the sun, while ignoring the crux of the matter: people don't leave jobs; they leave managers." - Travis Bradberry #leadersarentbullies #healthyworkplaces #leaderselevatethoughtandconduct #stepup #DignityAtWorkAct

Stand Up for the Innocent

Image
"To those who abuse: the sin is yours, the crime is yours, and the shame is yours. To those who protect the perpetrators: blaming the victims only masks the evil within, making you as guilty as those who abuse. Stand up for the innocent or go down with the rest." - Flora Jesso #leadersarentbullies #healthyworkplaces   #leaderselevatethoughtandconduct #stepup #DignityAtWorkAct In many interpersonal conflicts, both parties are accountable for the rift. This is not true with bullying and abuse. The perpetrator is always responsible. Successful leaders’ make certain bullying is not permitted in their organizations; their cultures do not tolerate abuse.

Solve Problems

Image
"We look for personal characteristics to predict success, like  perseverance in facing challenges. We look for the ability to influence and motivate others with shared values, strong problem-solving ability, and leadership." - Wendy Kopp #leadersarentbullies #healthyworkplaces #leaderselevatethoughtandconduct #stepup #DignityAtWorkAct Separate people from the problem. Identify, define, and address the problem with the approach both parties desire. Do not attack the other  person. Manage the problem.

Oh Canada!

Integrity

Image
"The greatness of a (person) is not in how much wealth (they) acquire, but in (their) integrity and (their) ability to affect those around (them) positively." - Bob Marley #healthyworkplaces #stepup #leaderselevatethoughtandconduct #DignityAtWorkAct Leaders build trust. They make vulnerable workers feel safe. They generate a positive spark and cycle of effectiveness. They shed light on bullying with transparency and self-awareness. They have integrity. #LeadersArentBullies
