3 Keys to Maintaining Healthy Workplace Culture


Exceptional managers have a knack for blending science and art to create profitable growth.

They make the most of the data and facts available to them—using hard analytics to make decisions—while still developing their employees and building and maintaining a healthy company culture.

A healthy culture is defined as simply – and as intricately – as fostering healthy relationships at all levels. But, as we all know, creating and maintaining healthy relationships is a complicated venture. So how do exceptional managers maintain that healthy culture?

Is it magic? No. The truth is that three components—what I call the three Cs—help those managers drive performance and build exceptional teams. You can also make use of them to lead your organization to greater success.


The first C is care, and it’s important because your employees won’t care much about organizational success until they know that you care about their individual success. Managers with big hearts build big success for their companies.

The second C is conflict—but I’m not talking about the kind of strife and discord most of us think of when we hear that word. Productive conflict—the respectful and compassionate handling of differing points of view—can be the catalyst for innovation and change.

Finally, the third C is communication, the core of every successful organization. Leveraging insights gleaned from honest and open communication with your team will drive critical conversations—and ultimately accelerate profitable growth.


Consider the three Cs in your organization. How do you stack up against the kind of exceptional managers who use them to make a difference?

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Which of the 3Cs do you think is best developed and used most effectively in your organization?
  • Which one needs the most improvement?
  • Can you identify any walls that exist between you and your employees?
  • How effective are you and your management peers at handling conflict in a healthy and productive way?
  • What are the greatest challenges you face in effectively communicating with your employees?


Your team’s effectiveness is a direct reflection of your skills and capabilities.

If your team hasn’t yet reached its full potential, you can start the improvement process by assessing your effectiveness around care, conflict and communication. Small improvements in each of these areas will yield significant results!
