Interesting post over at Incentive Intelligence regarding incentive abuse, bad corporate culture and lack of trust.
‘If you don’t address the root cause of a problem you can’t motivate and reinforce the appropriate behaviors that will drive performance.
And many times the root cause is the company culture. A bad culture will pervert any incentive and recognition program.’
But I think lack of trust is a symptom of a bad culture, not its cause.
Bad culture is always the responsibility of the CEO (or whatever the top dog is called). Whether the culture is actively fostered by the boss or allowed to flourish through benign neglect it’s still his responsibility.
And no one but the boss can fix it, either.
What has your boss done for you company culture lately?
