Break the Silence in Your Organization
Blog by Julie Urlaub, Founder and Managing Partner at Taiga Company
When you walk the halls of your office do you hear the chatter of enthusiasm and excitement, or do you hear the sound of silence?Historically, the business world has viewed a quiet workplace as a sign things were running smoothly. A lack of employee complaints meant a happy and productive workforce. However, in today’s business environment, this same silence could prove to be deadly. Viewed by many professional consulting firms to be the pivot point in a company’s ultimate success or failure, talent can be a key differentiator in both short and long-term business sustainability. Leveraging this valuable resource, however, requires a culture that encourages employees to become engaged in the direction of the organization. Our sustainability consulting foresees a new age of sustainable business, one in which organizations recognize the value in leveraging their human capital. Traditionally led by executive management, we see leveraged leadership cultures enabling every role in the organization to:
Transcend the status quo
Create more meaningful work
Break-down the hierarchical barriers
