Chick HERE to CREATE A HEALTHY CULTURE OF DEBATE

This past week there has been a firestorm of controversy in regard to President Trump’s lashing out at NFL players who kneel in protest during the national anthem. The reaction is playing out on TV network broadcasts, social media, including Twitter. It is reported that there were as many as 3.8 million tweets on Sunday alone on this topic. It seems we cannot have a civil conversation with friends or colleagues without some debate of who was right, who was wrong, what is the real focus of the protests and the racial divisiveness it has created.

Chick HERE to learn to create a budget and find money for Employee Brand Engagement

Click Here To Learn about what employees need to succeed at work

As you might imagine, I receive and read many studies on employee engagement, culture, mission, vision and values. They seem to be getting more complicated and anecdotal rather than practical. They rarely offer distinct findings and recommendations on what an organization can do.

I was having a social lunch on Saturday at a friend’s house. The male companion of one of our friends who was visiting from Chicago, a tenured professor of applied electrical engineering, made a comment that started a heated a discussion. He said that he didn’t think that women were discriminated for opportunities in the sciences or technology, at least at his university. He thought the fact that the population at his university is over 70% male didn’t seem to make a difference – “Women had the same opportunities as men”. I thought one of our other female friends who was sitting across the table was going to launch across the table and strangle him with her bare hands. She has been in business for over 25 years, has a PhD and is a CEO of a biotech nonprofit. She said that women are discriminated in the sciences all the time. She continued saying something to the effect, ”that women were being held back because groping white men were reaching up under their skirts and holding them back.” Wow! Yes, lunch was a little uncomfortable after that point, but we made got through it with serious discussion, fine wine and laughter.
