Next week I will be in Florida with 40 ECOs from my organization.
Although I’m the host, the agenda was largely crafted by the attendees. They selected most of the topics and they will be doing most of the presenting.
When you let 40 people create an agenda without any coordination, you might expect a certain lack of cohesion. Interestingly, it didn’t happen. In fact, most topics align with just a few themes: harassment in the workplace, speaking up, and investigations.
For a culture enthusiast like me, this was music to my ears. The team sees what’s going on in the news with celebrities and politicians, and they want to ensure that our processes will continue to keep these behaviors at bay.
I look forward to learning from them. Even more so, I look forward to supporting the changes that will make our culture even better.
Theirs is the work of ethical leadership.
