Workplace drama sucks the productivity out of a team or organization. It also creates an inhospitable environment where healthy people don't want to work so they leave. Good, productive people leave the organization. In fact, the best people, the highest performers, the self-directed, the most creative, those that need little oversight, are most likely to leave. Why?
So much time and effort is required to navigate through all the drama. High performers just want to get the job done, but the drama is a barrier. Managers and leaders spend way to much time trying to tamp it down, or worse, let it continue to happen, but find work-arounds.
Drama can be anywhere on the spectrum between easily seen and difficult to recognize because it is so nuanced. When it is the latter, it can be very insidious, working its way throughout the organization without raising a lot of flags, until the negative results start becoming obvious. Because it is often so pervasive it can seem like it would be hard or nearly impossible to eradicate. Its not.
Creating a drama free environment has to start with identifying that the current workplace has drama, and then making a commitment to eliminate the drama, which usually starts with understanding the benefits. The benefits include higher productivity, more harmonious culture, which attracts and retains top talent, less leadership time spent addressing the symptoms of drama, more time developing and executing strategy.
There is no *quick fix* for a drama-filled environment, but changes can be undertaken immediately and positive results can be realized immediately. It doesn't even have to start at the top, team members can begin to transform the environment with their own commitment and actions. Although to change the organizational culture, senior management has to buy-in and commit to making changes.
