Like it or not, most people have inherent biases, certain opinions or judgments which have developed over time, which affect relationships within the workplace. Like complacency, strong opinions and biases can plague friendly business relationships and great customer service. Office politics can become a true stumbling block for project communications and organizational effectiveness. A lack of organizational transparency discourages innovation and achievement. From this behavior, collaboration and team dynamics can be strained creating a negative corporate culture, ultimately affecting your clients. Getting buy-in from leadership to be transparent within the organization, setting a standard, and uprooting negative habits when they occur can change the corporate culture for the better. Charles Zulanas, Senior Consultant for MSS Business Transformation Advisory, shares many articles from around the web that offer advice on how to overcome biases in the workplace that could be beneficial for overcoming office politics as well as generational gaps.
