Toxic environments make people sick, make projects fail, and make best employees quit.

Oleg Vishnepolsky Global CTO at DailyMail Online and Metro.Co.Uk

“Culture is more important than vision. Some leaders have great vision, but have created a toxic culture where that vision will never happen.” Phil Cooke

Signs you work in a toxic environment:

1) Disrespect and belittlement

2) Unreasonable pressure to get short term results at expense of the long term strategy

3) Inequity, unfairness, favoritism, injustice

4) Any kind of harassment and bullying

5) Lack of empathy, of appreciation, of support

6) Excessive control known as micromanagement

7) Morally questionable environments, lack of integrity, encouragement of dishonesty

In an environment like this, no matter how great a vision and strategy are – they will never be executed on.

Great leaders fix toxic cultures.

They empower, involve, listen, appreciate, challenge, support, mentor. They value hard work and job well done, honesty, integrity, commitment and dedication.

They know:

“Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” Peter Drucker

Agree ?

I have been a Licensed Notary Public for the State of Indiana since 2015. In 2019, I've decided to venture out and start my own Notary business to help others with notarial services. I am a member of the National Notary Association and a Licensed Signing Agent. I look forward to growing my business and serving those in Indiana.
