Daring Greatly: Post #7--Work and School
Re-humanize work and school. Leaders are those who hold themselves accountable for finding potential in people and process. It’s not about position but attitude and behavior. Leading in a culture of scarcity—“never enough”—is tough. Fear of failure and rejection inhibits innovation at school and work. “Blaming, gossiping, name-calling and harassment are all behavioral clues that shame has permeated a culture.” Often kids are shamed at school about something they created (writing, drawing, art, etc.) and it can scar them for a LONG time. Same at work.
