It is always amazing to see how enormous the impact of interpersonal relationships is on executive teams and therefore on organizations.
Some of the many key areas that are impacted are;
- Personal wellbeing and happiness at work
- Optimizing resources
- Professional Growth
Most of the interpersonal issues are caused by the lack of opportunity to have authentic and constructive communication. This lack of communication is an extremely fertile breeding ground for our minds. As we are not taking the opportunity to discover what our peers are thinking and why they do what they do, we creatively replace facts with assumptions. Over time, these assumptions become our reality and with each executive living in their own reality and seeing this as fact, the mountain is formed and often becomes too daunting to climb.
We get used to functioning like this and therefore accept the limitations that this places on our potential results.
This is not as daunting as it seems. Take the challenge of climbing this mountain and you will see that it is actually a small hill, that step by step will have dramatic results on your organization.
