How Civilized is Your Organization?

How civilized is your organization? Can it pass the Slow Leadership test for a working environment beneficial to the people who inhabit it? Now you have a chance to find out. Use this link to take our new quiz and check out the key determinants of a truly civilized workplace. You may learn something you didn’t expect.

Slow Leadership is the art of building an organization that’s both effective and a civilized place to work. A poll of more than 1,000 UK employees found more and more people at work either behaving discourteously or suffering a barrage of discourteous, unpleasant demands and behaviour that had implicit corporate approval. Is the United States likely to be much better? I doubt it. Nor anywhere else in the “civilized” world.

I recently came across a reference to a world-famous investment bank, whose proud boast to new recruits is: “You won’t know your children. But you’ll get to know your grandchildren really well.” Is that how you want to conduct your working life? Is it enough to make money, even if you don’t have a life outside of work?

Try the quiz . I hope it will make you think, before it’s too late.

P.S. The quiz needs Flash, but most up-to-date browsers should have no problems with that. You can always download a free copy of the Flash player from Adobe.

I love your mix of effective and civil and have enjoyed the fact that you balance these two in your test. Like you... I too remain concerned with how systems have promoted an inhumane atmosphere fr workers and leaders. I am very interested in the motivations and tactics to turn that around for those who are ready for change. What do you think?
