Hiring yes-men and yes-women.
Creating yes-teams and yes-departments.
Employees are discouraged to disagree.
Discouraged to bring forth new ideas and better ways of doing things.
Discouraged to go against the grain.
Discouraged to speak out.
Hire the right people to the right jobs.
The right people may not be the yes-people.
Innovation, creativity, trust – a culture that thrives (not suffocates) comes from connecting diverse perspectives in an environment that is based on safety, not fear.
