Approximately half of all women will experience sexual harassment in the workplace. Recent headlines illustrate how pervasive and damaging this is to the individuals affected, as well as to the organizations where they were harassed.
Do you and your company know what constitutes sexual harassment? Are you at risk? And what can you do to ensure an engaging and supportive workplace that allows everyone to perform their best?
That headline makes a bold claim. And guess what? It gets even better: You already have the necessary resources to create your advantage.
You read that right. You already have the resources: Your people. But it’s not having people that sets you apart. It’s what your people are capable of doing that will give you an edge in the marketplace.
Let’s face it: We live in a world full of choices and unlimited amounts of information available to us when making decisions. Whether it be a job change, a relationship conundrum, or a decision related to health, sometimes talking these decisions through is the best way to sift through the data and consider all the possible outcomes. When I need that kind of help, I'm glad to have a personal board of directors (PBOD).
Unless you’ve had your head in the sand, you’ve been barraged with reports telling you how the American workforce is utterly disengaged. Gallup recently reported that only one-third of American workers are engaged and 16% are actively disengaged. In a 2013 survey, only 24% of the 550 executives surveyed reported that employees in their organization are highly engaged. Given that the cost of disengagement is estimated between $450 billion to $550 billion in lost productivity per year, it’s probably time to get to the bottom of this issue.
My greatest joy is helping people make bold transitions in their professional and personal lives!
