We are 100 days into 2021 and have experienced Capitol riots, shootings, and the trial against the police officer in the death of George Floyd. You may be wondering how to breach critical, yet sometimes uncomfortable, topics with your employees – such as the civil unrest happening in our communities.
As a business leader, you cannot stay silent for fear of saying the wrong thing or pretend these incidents aren’t occurring. Your employees are thinking about what’s going on and are wondering why you aren’t acknowledging it.
Avoiding important subjects can lead to frustrated and unhappy employees. Be open, honest, and genuine and take the necessary steps outlined above to move forward and make positive change as a team.
