We are never going to have a perfect workplace. It can even feel like the more we try to create a Utopian environment, the more difficult it is to achieve. Some people will always be unhappy and feel they’re getting the short end of the stick; that you’re favoring one person, or one group, or one department over another. But this shouldn’t keep us from working toward the goal of having an empowered culture.
Walking back an entitled culture isn’t easy. But when you consider the costs of allowing it to continue versus the benefits of empowerment, the effort is worthwhile.
