Quick question. Would you rather work in a environment where there is grace or an environment that beats the shit out of you when you make a mistake? I prefer grace. In a work environment it's easy to create a culture that's hardlined and results oriented and completely misses the heart piece of culture. This is typically learned from leadership and trickles down from the team. It could also be a function of a passive leader that doesn't work to establish a culture and is passive in their leadership.
Think abouth the best teams that you have ever been a part of. What made them so good? I just talked with a leader who shared with me his work on the culture of his business through our coaching together. What can a culture of support do for your business? They are having the best year in nine years and they love coming into the office again.
