Each month, we go to the team members at People Centric Consulting Group to gather their own insights based on real experiences with organizations.
“Don’t get stuck in your own story. We all think in terms of stories, and we fill in gaps in the story with our own perceptions. Once this story is created, it is very hard to change it. This is why communication is so important. Make sure that the people closest to you have a part in creating your story, and then be open to the fact that your story may not always be completely accurate.”—Don Harkey
“‘There are two sides to every story, and then there is the truth.’ Miscommunication and misinterpretations will always exist, which results in two sides of the story. In order to prevent these two sides from interrupting company culture and core values, it is vital for people to find the truth. This can be accomplished by breaking down each story and integrating them.”—Bethany Bishop
“Organizations need an insight champion. Sometimes groups succumb to bandwagon bias (agreement for the sake of forming a status quo), which does not always result in progress. Insight champions are those who are able to keep the conservation flowing so that the organization uncovers the best path forward."—Randy Mayes
