Organizational Alignment and Collaboration
Are your employees telling you what you want to hear, but not what you NEED to know? Get everybody on the same page, and solidify alignment with ‘conflict collaboration.’TM
Whether you are going through a reorganization or simply formulating new strategies, gaining buy-in from your employees is crucial to collaboration. Employees who are not on the same page fear being viewed as impolite or creating conflict for speaking up. These employees are a detriment to any organization, as they become “yes men,” who echo agreement, instead of discussing important issues or ideas.
Oftentimes the efforts of an organization are unintentionally sabotaged from within, simply from what is not being said.
Fear, negativity, and unresolved conflict cause missed opportunities and obstruct innovation. Worst of all, these things keep employees from discussing difficult issues, which leaves YOU in the dark.
