Assume Positive Intent

Encouraging a positive company culture is a central pillar to our success at Bellese Technologies. It’s important that our employees have a strong sense of belonging and enjoy coming to work. We want to take pride in our achievements but also celebrate failures and what we learn from them.

In this post, we will share some thought provoking considerations we’ve passed on to our employees.

We build trust over time. Unfortunately we can destroy trust in an instant. But it doesn’t have to be that way. When something goes wrong, try to see past that moment, as it was most likely unconscious and without malice. Empathy is one of the hardest emotions to master, but try to put yourself in their shoes and ask whether their heart was in the right place. If in doubt, grab them for a coffee and check. More than likely they will have the same goal as you and that moment can be forgotten before any damage is done.

Trust is the bedrock of teams, so give it freely and if in doubt, believe in the promise that everyone wants to do right by their colleagues.
