It occurred to me that these and many other questions are relevant both as parents and as managers. Do we make sweeping corrections of the tone and structure of an employee's prose, or make only modest edits for fear of undermining them? Do we harshly enforce punctuality, or do we "treat them like adults" and let them set their own schedule?
One role of a manager is to lead, and it's difficult to lead cultural transformation if managers are not willing to talk about some of the real blocks to building a sustainable, profitable organization. Change will not happen overnight. These types of behavioral shifts take time to interrupt, and can only happen one behavior, one authentic conversation at a time.
