poor cross-departmental relationships

Running a business that has multiple departments can be a challenge. Each department feels it has its own turf to defend, and each department head sets their own expectations, norms, and working conditions that can vary greatly. However, most organizations inadequately equip their staff to effectively negotiate work relationships through these challenges.

Managing these various departments requires deft handling of different department cultures and developing an overall corporate culture that sets procedures, expectations, and working conditions that each department can customize to fit its style, yet conforms with your vision of the company.

“You seem to really get it that the workplace is multifaceted and that employees at any level are affected by a variety of inputs that impact their productivity, their attitude, and relationship to their work environment. You encourage people to look in the mirror, to participate in their own discovery and then walk with them as try new ways of engaging their work.”
