These essays, which appeared in The New York Times Magazine, articulate the realities of workplace dynamics. Directors and boards should take serious note. A Mental Health America / Faas Foundation survey of 17,000 workers in North America called ‘Mind the Workplace’ revealed that 70 percent of workers do not speak well of their organization.
Based on research I have done for my books and articles, I assert that power and control cultures, which beget wrongdoing and abuse is the primary reason for this. Yes a revolution is necessary, which is why the Faas Foundation partnered with Yale University on a major initiative called ‘Emotion Revolution in the Workplace’ to help organizations create psychologically safe, fair and emotionally intelligent workplaces.
