Discouraging the dispassion of subordination: A leadership challenge

A subtle but ever present #leadership challenge

When you are an employee, regardless of the organizational pecking order, one of the most important things you’ll need to work on (and master) is resisting the temptation of dispassion.

What’s that you ask?

It’s a feeling most people experience when they’re not in charge (without a formal position of authority) and their ideas either get shot down repeatedly or they are labelled for whatever reason, and they simply “check-out”, disconnect and throw their hands-up in the air – Yikes!

It’s sort of feeling where you’re constantly out of the loop when it comes to the opportunities to provide feedback or have your voice “heard”. This is evident in the vast majority of companies, in every region of the world, some more than the other.

And it is the responsibility of #Leadership to spot this right when it happens and instill and reinforce participation across the board make it a core part the #organizationalculture and emphasize this in all #organizationaldevelopment activities.

How in your view should companies handle this passivity and dispassion?
