Too many entrepreneurs, managers and leaders fall into a trap.
The trap is simple to describe:
You are so focused on survival, on getting the job done, on moving forward, that you sacrifice culture.
If you have a bully working for you, and you say:
“Well, yeah he is a bully but at leasts he can really get the job done.”
If you are afraid to move people around because you are afraid that these prima-donnas will leave your organization even though they deliver, you will pay the prize in the long term.
You know what? We get the culture we deserve.
Those people who are getting results but are mean, destructive and arrogant to other colleagues, they are creating a toxic culture in your company.
What you tolerate in the short term has the potential to shape the culture of the company.
