A Message From Kim: Slow out of the Gate?
Kim (Parker) Gusman, President

Recently I was visiting my parents in Arizona and we spent a fun afternoon at the horse races. I enjoy betting on the long shots, because if they win, the payoff is great. I also enjoy watching those horses start slow out of the gate, eventually pick up speed, join the rest of the pack and then cross the finish line in first place.

Is your company still pondering how (or whether) to address all of the harassment issues in the news?  “Even if your organization is slow with an official response to #MeToo, there is nothing stopping you from shifting mindsets and enforcing the right behaviors on your team…” says Shiani Magosky, founder of The Better Boss Project. 

When it comes to the #MeToo movement, regardless of the size of your company, it’s important to make it clear that it is absolutely unacceptable to harass people in the workplace based on sex, race, religion, sexual preference, nationality, or for any reason.   

Don’t waste money surveying your employees to see if #MeToo violations have happened in your workplace, just assume that they have and do everything you can to promote a healthy and functional work environment. To improve or change your company culture, in addition to Harassment Prevention and Diversity & Inclusion training, Magosky suggests team meetings to discuss:

•    What your company won’t tolerate and what to do if employees see or hear something.
•    How to give and receive feedback, both positive and constructive.
•    Negative assumptions about other team members that need to be broken down.
•    What are we committed to as a team? 

Culture transformation takes time and planning. If you're not sure where to start, it doesn't mean you've lost the race. Give us a call, we can help you in a variety of ways. From over the phone coaching, on-line trainings, on-site trainings and facilitated team meetings, CEA will lighten your load and reduce your liability.
