  • 1.  How  safe  is  it  to  speak  up  in  your  organizaBon?  
  • #1  post  in   8  years!   Sigh…  
  • “Nearly  half  of  execuOve  teams  fail  to  receive  negaOve  news  that  is  material  to  performance  in  a  Omely  manner  because  employees  are  afraid….”   The  Corporate  ExecuOve  Board   “Open  Door  Policy,  Closed-­‐Lip  Reality”  
  • 82%  have  experienced  some  kind  of  penalty  for  speaking  the  truth.  Source:  “Speaking  Truth  to  Power”  study  Dana  Theus,  ReclaimingLeadership.com  
  • Why  managers  don’t  ask,  involve:  1.  Fear  of  negaOve  feedback.    2.  Unstated  (and  erroneous)  management  beliefs:   •     Employees  are  self-­‐interested,  untrustworthy   •     Top  management  knows  best   •     Consensus  =  organizaOonal  health   Source:  “Sounds  of  Silence”   NYU  Stern  School  of  Management

  • Most  visions  feel  like  this.  Hard  to  connect  new  ideas  to  fuzziness.  Hard  to  evaluate  decisions.  Hard  to  know  if  you’re  making  progress.  Easy  to  get  lost.  Feels  uncertain,  someOmes  frightening.  
  • People  want  a  concrete  view  of  what  success  looks  like.  Then  they  can  be  creaOve  on  how  to  get  to  end  result.

  • Most  people  rewarded  for  keeping  the  trains  running.    Not  criBcal  thinking.  
  • Few  organizaBons  reward  people  for  healthy  conflict,  honest  conversaBons.    
  • What’s  a  corporate  rebel  to  do?  
  • 1.  Show  how  your  idea   helps  achieve   organizaOonal  goals,   vision.  
  • 2.  Find  allies.
