This week, Colin is in conversation with Garry Crosby, ex-Royal Air Force operative and business growth specialist, about the ways in which organisations can engender honesty, openness and trust among their workforce, and how this can benefit productivity and safety in the long run.
- Everyone has a different viewpoint and perspective about what success looks like. Finding that perspective is key to creating a great culture in our organisations, by allowing our people to achieve their own vision of success.
- Introducing culture into a workplace is not an instant thing. It requires dedication and patience. The time taken will be well rewarded in the long run.
- A blame culture does not help anyone to improve. It merely breeds fear and disrespect, and goes some way towards making sure that people do not act as part of a team.
- Admitting we can learn from errors of misjudgments is the key to learning and moving forwards. This can represent a deep cultural shift for many, but it is the key to being better.
'Everyone has a different definition of what success is'
'The better you get, the harder you have to work'
'It's narrow-sighted to look at the individual and make them the scapegoat'
'I like to see business owners reflect when things haven't gone wrong'
