“A value is only a value when it limits your ability to make a profit.”
Bard Papegaaij, Director and Chief Change Facilitator of Transgrowth International, has focused his career on emotional intelligence in the workplace and the human side of organizations. Although working for the same company, different sides of businesses speak different languages, and it’s up to leadership to translate and involve every side to work together.
From the IT perspective to the three languages every business should learn in their organization, Papegaaij shares important gems that can help any company work together, learn their true value and find solutions to human issues. Emphasizing the important roles for CIOs, Papegaaij believes the responsibility of collaboration is in their hands.
“One of the key responsibilities for CIOs in the future is to be co-responsible for the culture of the organization,” Papegaaij says. “We cannot pretend that that is not our business.”
