3 T’s for a Top Performing Culture

Timothy’s Thought for Thursday

Joe Clancy, the current director of the United States Secret Service, is a veteran agent who has been charged by President Obama to bring reforms to a troubled agency. Early 2015, he was grilled on Capitol Hill by the House Appropriations Committee regarding a March 4 incident at the White House. He admitted that as the director he did not know the incident had happened until 5 days later when he got an anonymous email. When questioned why he was kept in the dark by his staff, he said he thought it was due to fear of repercussions when reporting bad news up the chain of command.

What you don’t know, can hurt you.

Transparency Truth Trust by Timothy J. Carroll

As leaders, we need to provide our employees a safe environment where they want to report incidents and problems as they arise. If a culture of fear is created by Leadership, people will not tell the truth or they will omit the truth; essentially lying to protect themselves. This is destructive to the organization because as a leader, what you don’t know, you don’t know. What is essential is a culture of:

  • Transparency,
  • Truth, and
  • Trust.

This is a top performing culture, one that owns its challenges together and can solve them together. Only then can something be learned, owned, and applied so it does not happen again.

Parenting is just like leadership, it’s best done by being a positive role model. Your children will learn from you mostly through your example. Making sure you walk your talk is the best way to create a culture where the children’s character and behavior are shaped for adulthood. The same applies to your culture at work. The core leadership should embody the principles they want to see consistently in their team. This needs to be done at the office and home for integrity and trust to endure.

How to Lead the Right Way

By | Timothy's Thought for Thursday | No Comments

Timothy’s Thought for Thursday:

Leadership must remember that it is the people of their company who are the power and creates the results. Without them, nothing gets done. When leadership becomes too autocratic, arrogant, and all-knowing (3 A’s, I won’t mention the 4th), they lose their way. The culture this type of leadership causes is typically one of compliance, low engagement, high turnover filled with pockets of rebellion, and dissatisfaction leading to negative growth. The culture is not happy thus the people are not happy. Happiness begets happiness and happy staff equals happy customers.
