Organised bravery

The purpose of the modern organisation is to make it easy and natural and expected for people to take risks. To lean out of the boat. To be human.

Alas, most organisations do the opposite. They institutionalise organised cowardice. They give their people cover, a place to hide, a chance to say, “that’s not my job.”

Our organisations are filled with people not only eager to dehumanise those that they serve, but apparently, instructed to do so. In the name of shareholder value or team play or not rocking the boat…

During times of change, the only organisations that thrive are those that are eager to interact and change as well. And that only happens when individuals take brave steps forward.

Giving your team cover for their cowardice is foolish. Give them a platform for bravery instead.
