Learn how to eliminate gossip, speak candidly, and restore workplace collaboration and synergy.
Learn how to contain the damage of negativity and bad behavior in your team, and realize a more productive, efficient, and fun work environment—and life!
Gossip has long been a part of workplace culture. And at first it even seems harmless: a little chitchat at the water cooler, a quick debate over someone’s relationship with someone else, some small speculation…
But the truth is it’s anything but harmless. Gossiping is a key indicator of an unhealthy organizational culture and one of the fastest ways to derail creativity and productivity. It takes a lot of mental and emotional energy to engage in stories about others – energy that could be used more productively for creating win/win solutions and advancing an organization.
Unfortunately, leaders often avoid dealing with this drama in the workplace, or deal with it badly, for one of two reasons:
1. They lack the skills to address difficult interpersonal topics.
2. They’re fearful that confrontation will make matters worse.
But the only way to eliminate gossip (and the drama it creates) and restore workplace collaboration and synergy is by addressing both the gossiper and the listener.
In Drama-Free Leadership, you’ll learn how to clean up the gossip in your workplace and how to address drama proactively. You’ll learn the Issue Clearing Model – a proven method that brings together gossiper and listener to work through the issues – getting to the facts, encouraging active listening and solving the problem together.
In this program, best-selling author, Kaley Klemp, draws from years of experience working with more than 2,500 CEOs and their executive teams. You’ll learn:
- How to separate fact from fiction – the first step in eliminating gossip
- What speaking the unarguable truth means and how it will help improve all of your relationships – both at work and at home
- How to use the Issue Clearing Model as a tool for speaking candidly and directly to one another
- Tips for being a conscious listener
- How to reduce your own dramatic tendencies and take control of your work life
- Solutions to create and sustain a collaborative, authentic, and fun work environment
