What to Do if You're Surrounded by Yes-People

By Jane Smith
From Gallup


Do your best to make everyone who reports to you, directly or indirectly, feel heard. Specifically ask, "Is there something I could have done better in that situation?" or, "What do you need from me?"

Depending on your role, schedule team feedback sessions or company town halls with time dedicated to open Q&A.

Hearing the true state of things can be jarring, especially if the culture at your company is for leaders to be cheerleaders for an initiative or change. You need to know how those changes affect people down the line.

People want to do what you hired them to do. They also want to know that you depend on their expertise -- that their role is important, and you trust them.
