10 Positive Changes We Need in Corporate America

10 Positive Changes We Need in Corporate America

The following are ten changes I would like to see occur in Corporate America that would make us more profitable and a much better place to work:

#1 Hospitality and treating employees like family would be practiced by all leaders.

#2 Incentive designs that would eliminate political maneuvering, silos and animosity between departments and/or divisions of the same company.

#3 Company culture and creating a positive work environment would be treated as a strategic business necessity.

#4 Work/life integration would be taken seriously and practiced by all departments and leaders.

#5 No-layoff policies enacted by all companies.

#6 Certifiable jerks and bossholes would not be eligible for hire, and especially not promoted to leadership.

#7 Titles and status would not be emphasized. Servant leadership would be practiced.

#8 Common decency would return to executive compensation management.

#9 Executive criminals who have embezzled millions of dollars would not be treated lavishly by authorities and like celebrities by the media.

#10 Greed, self-dealing and short-term decision-making would not be considered admirable qualities.
