Leaders and managers have the important responsibility of engaging and inspiring their employees, achieving quality service, and setting the tone for a great company culture.

In other words, leaders have the opportunity to MAKE THINGS RIGHT, but 95% of them fail to do so.

That failure is unfair to employees, patients, and the bottom line. Unfairness infiltrates organizations when leaders are unaware or ineffective on the fundamentals of a Just Culture. The reality is that 95% of leaders are stuck within a social conscious construct that leads to unfairness and injustice when it comes to their employees, teams, and workplace culture.

You may be a new leader in your organization.

It’s a new role for you; a new opportunity for you to have a tremendous impact.

You may have seen things that are questionable in terms of ethics.

You’ve tried to say something about it, but it’s fallen on deaf ears.

Now you’re feeling that you may be complicit in bad behavior.

You’re not sure what to do.
