We Need Your Help: Influencing Employees' Bad Behavior

We’re taking a candid look at how management attempts to influence the bad behavior of employees and how effective these influence efforts are in creating change.

Do any of these behaviors sound familiar in your workplace?

  • People make commitments, but don’t take them seriously.
  • Coworkers gossip or talk behind each others’ backs, creating cliques.
  • When projects fall through, people shift blame instead of taking responsibility.

Please weigh in by taking our 3-minute survey today.

All who complete the survey will receive a free MP3 download from our Influencer Audio Companion. Listen as author Kerry Patterson shares how to increase your influence by making use of vicarious experiences.

Thank you for your continued help in supporting our research efforts!
