I hope all of you are doing well during these crazy times we are living.
This was a very interesting article, and also one that I am sure most of us can relate to. I believe most people find themselves in a position similar to the on described in the article where we fear to communicate something of importance because of how our managers may react to these; some of us have also been on the other side of the table, where someone might have not communicated something because they were afraid of a possible negative reaction from us.
As mentioned in the article, this is a serious problem regardless of which industry you work in; but when it happens in the healthcare industry it turns even more serious because there are lives at stake. This is an industry where many times it is crucial that individuals put their personal interest behind those of the consumer, as these people are patients that need the best attention they can get.
I definitely agree with this article. I specially agree with it when the author mentions that building a candid culture within an organization takes a lot of work, but that there is no other option if what we want is to do the right thing. Furthermore, in terms of efficiency in any industry, a toxic work environment makes everything go uphill and the results are never optimal. Transitioning to a pleasant work environment is a good way to get things running the way they should. Finally, I truly believe that good communication always translates to better performance.
Thank you for taking the time to read my opinion on the article, I can’t wait to read some of yours.
