Just back from speaking at Air Command & Staff College at Air University. It’s the home of US Air Forces’ Department of Leadership in Montgomery, Alabama. There I had the pleasure of meeting Lieutenant Colonel & Dr. Andrew Clayton. His research and work shows that new technology can teach enhanced people skills and prevent toxic leadership.
Check out this link and be sure to watch the 8 minute video on AVATARS. So cool! 🙂 https://airman.dodlive.mil/2020/02/24/toxic-leadership/
Often people ask what is a toxic culture and do we really have a problem with it here in the United States. I believe facts speak for themselves so…here they are. On an average year:
* 2 million people are physically attacked at work
* 6 million people are threatened
* 16 million people are harassed causing injury, illness or emotional distress
Even harder to measure, the “ba-zillions” of employees who are not supported & empowered and feel emotionally discouraged and become less innovative and productive.
You bet toxic cultures exist! We’ve become so used to them, we hardly recognize them as unhealthy.
We can do better!
