An Everyone Culture

I am currently reading “An Everyone Culture” by Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey.

“In most organisations nearly, everyone has a second job no one is paying them for – namely, covering their weaknesses, trying to look their best, and managing other people’s impressions for them.”

Think of all the potential that is lost due to energy directed into personal, unproductive pursuits.

Kegan and Lahey go on to interrogate the idea of creating a culture, where these pursuits are acknowledged and acted on to build flourishing organisations.

They follow 3 businesses who are Deliberately Developmental Organisations (DDO). Where creating a desired culture is an intentional pursuit.

Today’s employees are looking for an organisation where they can fulfil their potential, collaborate without judgement, and be a better person each day.

We all want to grow, develop and be part of something bigger.

Next Jump (DDO) have a mantra – Better Me + Better You = Better Us. Specific and genuine.

It takes courage to go against the grain, but imagine a work environment where everyone is encouraged to reach their potential on a daily basis? Not just words on a plaque over the door. Actually, modelling and living the growth belief.

I am looking forward to more insights.

Is your workplace an Everyone Culture?
