In order to create a truly respectful workplace, you have to move from a ‘me’ organization to become ‘we.’ Recently, a family member was talking about her workplace.

And apparently one, where the ‘me’ takes precedence over the ‘we.’ She said that she has learned to just look out for herself and so do the other people in the office.

They have become a culture of ‘me’ and clearly it is not working. Imagine, if they all worked together and had a vested interest in the organization? Let’s go as far to visualize that they all respected one another too.

Now that seems like a place that you would look forward to going to in the morning. It might also be an organization with less turnover and more productivity. Just one little mind shift from ‘me’ to ‘we’ was all it took.
