Break Free From the Blame Game

“That wasn’t my fault”. Or how about, “I didn’t do it.” Or maybe “that mistake is totally on that coworker.” We play the blame a lot at work, and though we don’t like to admit it, we like it. 

We sit in blame because it feels pretty darn good for something to be someone else’s fault. What a relief it can be. Here’s the problem though, blame makes for bad work environments. It kills collaboration and smothers innovation. How do some teams get weighed down by blame? More importantly, how do we overcome it? 

In this episode, I talk about blame - one game we shouldn’t participate in at work.

Celebrating failure actually keeps people out of the blame game and focused on innovation. - Jen Thornton
