Have you ever expe­ri­ence jump­ing from one orga­ni­za­tion to anoth­er just because you found out that you were not a fit? Or worst the cul­ture sucks.

Many years ago, I’ve been in an orga­ni­za­tion in which a man­ag­er lacks trust to his peo­ple. He con­stant­ly checks what we do, and if one per­son failed to com­ply with his poli­cies, the entire team will suf­fer. Why? He will just cre­ate a new pol­i­cy that affects the whole team.

And for me, that is a lack of trust. I will start to feel that I don’t have the auton­o­my any­more in my career, poli­cies get­ting stricter and my col­leagues will also start to point fin­gers to any­one rather than own­ing their own mis­take. Peo­ple will be dis­cour­aged to speak out.

Have you ever encoun­tered that kind of man­age­ment?

Lead­ers cre­ate cul­ture. When we as lead­ers lack trust in our sub­or­di­nates, we will only cre­ate a cul­ture of sus­pi­cion.

Build a cul­ture of trust and not a cul­ture of sus­pi­cion.
