In general, people like to get along with each other and part of this process means not dropping each other in it! Whilst this is admirable, you also need to have good communication to determine where there are points of improvement that can be made.
Here are 3 ways to avoid creating a dreaded blame culture within your organisation.
1. look at how the process can be improved
The first step to take is a top-line look at the process and how things can be improved. If you can avoid blaming each member of the team and rather look at how the process can be improved, then you will avoid a blame culture.
2. Encourage employees to take ownership over business practices
If you encourage employees to take ownership over the practices within the business then it will help you when it comes to taking an owners perspective on things. If employees feel involved with the process, then it will lead to them feeling less blamed and more involved in working out how to improve things going forward.
3. Get outside help if needed
Getting outside help will give you a fresh perspective on what needs to be improved in an organisation. It can often be a helpful way to look at things with a fresh set of eyes. Getting a consultant who is removed from the process will greatly improve your chances of finding areas of improvement.
