Under stress and fear, employees withdraw to their silos, in an effort to control their own fields. Micro–management chokes creativity, people blame others for not getting results, and a climate of cynicism, negativity and blame takes root. We call that ‘below the line’.
By contrast, above the line, interactions between people are real and meaningful. Innovation flows from open dialogue and leaders serve by asking powerful questions. They have empathy and build relationships based on trust, creating alignment at all levels of the organization.
The results? Individuals challenge themselves and their colleagues, recognizing the full range of their skills and abilities. Trust is built and excitement is created.
