What Would You Do?


By AHRA Staff

July 2012—Every month, a hypothetical management situation is posted. You are encouraged to share your thoughts (in the comment box below) on how you would address the issue. Here is this month’s question, inspired by a post in the member forum:

What would you do if you started a new leadership position in a  department that had severe culture problems (distrust of supervisors, lack of employee engagement, etc.)? How would you earn the trust of your new employees and build a more positive work culture?

Be sure to check out others’ responses and join the discussion.

    I beileve that communication is the key. I started in a similar situation. I checked on my staff as soon as I walked in, made sure they got lunch, and said good-bye when I was leaving. I also checked in on them periodically throughout the day. I made sure to listen to their complaints and take care of the ones I could. I made sure to be positive and put a smile on my face every day.
