What work conversations do you hear:
positive and productive?
or, negative and toxic?
Ever walk up on a Kevin conversation?
You know Kevin, right?
Sure, the name may be different. But the conversation is the same.
It sounds something like:
Did you hear what I did? I . . . and then there’s this long list of alleged accomplishments.
And then there’s, You didn’t know how to do that? Oh I already knew that years ago. Kevin really does know everything.
What about, She’s such a loser. How many of her failures can the boss put up with? It’s always someone else’s fault, right?
The blame game shows up with, My work could be so much better if the company would hire some people who actually want to work.
And you can always count on Kevin saying, You’ve just got to do what I did. Pull yourself up by your own bootstraps!
Recognize any of those?
Sure you do.
It’s how work is talked about when the company culture is negative, toxic; poisoned.
I call it Kevin Culture.
Kevin is the poster child for negative work cultures everywhere.
And negative work cultures are everywhere.
Just ask the millions of people who swapped negative cultures during The Great Resignation. Now they’re members of The Great Regret club.
Kevin and his minions are everywhere. They belong to that species of employees known as suckus negativeus, more commonly referred to as Eeyore Vampires.
They are Eeyores because everyone else’s ideas never work. They’re dumb. Impossible. Because they aren’t his.
They are Vampires because they suck the lifeblood—time with family and friends—out of everyone including you. Maybe especially you because in HR you’re the dumping ground for all of Kevin’s garbage. How do you deposit trust in teams when he withdraws so much?
And watch out when Kevin is a manager. Manager Kevin is the reason the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) survey finds that 54% of employees resign.
And two-thirds of those remaining who still work around Kevin are seriously considering leaving.
Kevin Culture sucks.
Especially in work conversations.
Your company’s work culture determines how you talk about work.
So how can you transform work conversations?
I mean, you do want something else to talk about, right?
How can you give yourself and your co-workers Something to Talk About that’s positive?
I got tired of negative work conversations dominated by Kevin Culture.
