Providing Public Service: Stories that Make Us Great

Source: Scott Paine
I recently read an interesting piece on organizational culture (not a new piece; one I just found) that focused on organizational mythology. By “mythology” I don’t mean falsehood. I mean the stories that are told, and retold, within an organization, stories that express something at the core of the experience of being a member of that organization.
The article focused specifically on certain types of myths common to some organizations. The myth of the boss who does not shy from doing what front-line employees do (in the army, this is called a soldier’s general). The myth of the leaders who care more about their employees than about themselves, who sacrifice for the team by offering better benefits, or meeting the unique needs of individual employees in hard times, or preserving jobs at the expense of profits or even of their own income.
The myth of the leader who treats mistakes, even large ones, as growth opportunities, who asks “what can we learn?” rather than “who do we burn?” when things go badly wrong.

Thought about RMPE?

Thought about RMPE?

As I wrap up our first online meeting for the League’s Risk Management for Public Entities (RMPE) study group, I would be remiss if I did not let everyone know of this group, once again, and how it can help you obtain your RMPE certification.
