To Encourage Courage, Start with a “Fear Forage”
Today we bring you ideas for getting started building a courageous culture from backstage at the Mountain West Credit Union Association conference. And how to encourage more courage and innovation on your team.
- How to conduct a “fear forage” even if you are leading a virtual or hybrid team.
- Why “responding with regard” is so critical so employees know their idea is being taken seriously.
- Important first steps in encouraging your team to speak up and share their great ideas.
- AND, the most surprising finding in our Courageous Cultures research: 56% of respondents said that they don’t speak up because they’re afraid they won’t get the credit. Which of course is highly correlated with the challenge of managers moving so fast they forget to circle back with GRATITUDE thanking employees for their ideas.
