By Mark Scullard, PhD
Every single one of us struggles with insecurities. In fact, we do it every single day of our lives, even when we don’t realize it. What we realize even less, however, is just how much this insecurity eats away at our organizational cultures. But if we can help people own their personal quirks and if we can help them extend that same good will to their colleagues, we can cultivate a counteragent: a culture of trust. And luckily, organizations actually can reliably create experiences that bolster this sort of trust. This eBook explores one time-tested methodology for doing so: personality based assessments.
In an age where organizational culture holds more importance and significance than ever before, what can we do about the natural human behaviors that pose a threat to this culture? Dr. Mark Scullard, a PhD psychologist and senior director of product innovation for Wiley’s Workplace Learning Solutions division, has studied workplace human behavior and believes there is one root cause that drains organizational culture: individual insecurity.
In this new eBook, The Invisible Drain on Your Company’s Culture, Scullard traces the spread of dysfunctional behaviors at work to the self-doubts that beset each of us, and outlines a solution to help organizations move toward cultural improvement.
