In a world where business success often takes centre stage, we sometimes lose sight of the real cost of unethical behaviour. Beyond the balance sheets and quarterly results, there’s a high price to pay, and it’s paid by the very heart and soul of an organisation – its people. Unacceptable behaviour within companies is like a slow poison, leading to high staff attrition, demoralization and decreased productivity. The unchecked greed and disregards for others can leave us feeling stressed, anxious and disillusioned. It’s a heavy toll on our mental and physical health, and it erodes our trust in others faster than seagulls devour a pile of hot chips.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can change the script, fostering a new set of behaviours that not only drive business success but also make us healthier and happier in the workplace and beyond.
Here are three essential behaviours that can help us step back from the abyss of unacceptable behaviour and step into our true value and worth.
- Cultivate Empathy:
Recognize the humanity in your colleagues and clients. Empathy is the bridge that connects us to others on a deeper level, fostering trust, collaboration and a healthier workplace culture.
- Lead by Example:
Be the change you want to see. Demonstrating ethical behaviour and integrity not only sets the standard for your team but also inspires them to follow your lead.
- Prioritise Self-Care:
To be a valuable and effective team member or leader you must take care of your well being. Prioritse self-care, set boundaries, and maintain a work-life balance to ensure you are bringing your best self to the table.
