Last week I shared Steve Shurt’s “Seven Expectations”. This blog is a continuation of his August 5, 2016 “Friday Philosophizing”.
Steve’s email referred to employee meetings that were held in March 2016. He goes on to say:
“I thought a reminder of these expectations was a good way to start another Friday Philosophizing and fits well with a response I received from an employee to a previous email sent to our managers and supervisors. The reply contained a quote “nailing” culture. “The culture of any organization is shaped by the worst behavior the leader is willing to tolerate.” (Gruenter and Whitaker). This employee went on to say:
