Setting an example is not the main means of influencing people;
it is the only means.”
— A. Einstein

We believe and it has also been proven that most incidents as well as poor productivity are direct results of people and their behaviours. Rather than address just behaviors alone, we go to the root cause of why people act the way that they do and how we can help with improvement.

In the workplace, behaviours are often a direct result of attitudes. Positive attitudes show themselves in positive behaviours. We look at the various ways that we can encourage positive attitudes. We have found that there are at least 3 ways to foster and improve workers’ attitudes. They are personal values, an interdependent workplace culture, and effective leadership. This is illustrated in the following diagram:

 

The key element is good leadership. There can be a big difference between management and leadership. Ideally they are one in the same but often they are not. A good leader will understand and continuously demonstrate:

  • Strong emotional intelligence
  • The ability to empower and motivate teams
  • Empathy
  • A sense of justice
  • Skill in changing leadership styles instantly depending upon the situation at hand
  • A caring for the growth and well-being of the individual team members
  • A strong loyalty to the team
  • A firm and clear understanding of the values and culture of the organization
