In this podcast, Dr. De Hicks talks about the unintended psychological, neurological and social consequences of venting one's frustrations. Venting is actually rehearsing our frustration resulting in narrower thinking rather than problem-solving.
Culture is simply "how it really works around here." It's not complex. It is always behavioral. It always arises from the values of a group of individuals. And, it always has a group of people who are enforcers of the norms of the group. In this podcast, Dr. De Hicks talks about lessons learned in creating an intentional culture at work.
Managing conflict is an art. And as with all art forms, it requires a high degree of self-awareness, self-control, and skillful practice. Dr. De Hicks talks about lessons learned over nearly four decades of research into the impacts of conflict managed well, and not-so-well, in high impact organizations.
Dr. De Hicks and Donnie Quitugua talk about how to overcome one of the most toxic behaviors in the workplace: Triangulation.
Under pressure, even slight pressure, we often choose to triangulate rather than communicate directly. When we are in conflict most of the time, rather than communicating directly with the person or people involved, we talk to someone peripheral to the issue. From the time we are small, most of us wait until a small problem grows into a large one, dealing with the pressure along the way by venting.
This podcast identifies triangulation as the most destructive behavior in the workplace and shows how to overcome it. Whether you are the one starting the triangulation or the one to whom everyone comes to vent, these ideas will benefit you and your team.
