This summer we had a difficult experience at a summer day camp – with bullying. Bullying specifically that used ingroups and outgroups to create a power structure among a poorly supervised group of 5 – 7 year old boys.
What this bullying resembled; strangely enough, was the type of behaviour I encounter in organizations with toxic cultures but without some of the more telltale signs of “schoolyard” bullying.
I talk through a few examples of where I’ve experienced toxic culture and the tools I use to spot it. And the role and responsibility of leadership to identify the precursors to toxic culture and what they can do to change it.
