Your organization’s code of conduct identifies and defines the core values of your organization. This is helpful, assuming people read the code.
Your organization’s leadership speaks regularly about those core values. This is very helpful, assuming they personally live those values.
Your direct supervisor exhibits behaviors, on a daily basis, in line with the core values. This is when the values come to life.
We need a code. We need the right tone at the top. But more importantly, we need supervisors that are empowered to do the right thing and held accountable.
