The Human Friendly Workplace 6 - How Trust Enables Great Company Culture
Host: Jason Lauritsen
Guests: Chris Hutchins and Michael Krebs, Software Developers for Menlo Innovations
Have you tried to adopt an “agile” workplace in your organization and have it fail? Do you have enough trust within your organization to have a lunch with your peers and hear feedback on your performance? On a scale of 1 to 10, where would you rank your organization on Trust? In today’s episode we will explore how trust plays an integral part in the culture at your organization.
In today’s episode, Jason interviews Chris and Michael from Menlo Innovations. Menlo provides innovative consulting to the tech industry through; Education and training, Cultural transformation, Software design work to achieve user adoption and Software development work that maximizes quality and project management agility.
In the discussion, Chris and Michael share that the types of fears that exist at other organizations are a lot less here at Menlo. There is a heightened level of trust, the ability to be vulnerable and there is a collaborative element in the culture. It’s ok to not know everything, it’s ok to say “no”, and you won’t be shot down on your ideas. You can read more about the culture of Menlo in the book Joy, Inc. that was written by Rich Sheridan, CEO and Chief Storyteller at Menlo Innovations.
