Breaking Corporate Silence:

How High-Influence Leaders Create Cultures of Voice

by Dr Rob Bogosian & Christine Mockler Casper

Why did General Motors management avow they did not know about the multi-year festering ignition problem? Why did V.A. employees in internal documents “portray a culture of silence” based upon fear of retaliation? These “Cultures of Silence” resulted in substantial loss of productivity, revenue, trust and even loss of life.

Cultures of Voice

Using the Silence Voice Index (SVI), a proprietary diagnostic, RVB Associates can measure cultures of voice and silence. Our Culture of Voice workshops minimize or eliminate the risk associated with cultures of silence.

Cultures of silence exist when employees willfully withhold important work related information that could pose a risk to organizations. A culture of silence can cost organizations millions of dollars/Euros in penalties, lost revenue, brand erosion when discovered after the fact, when it is too late.

"I became very aware of how I listen when others talk to me, clinic aware of how I respond (or not), view and aware that as a leader, check my words and actions influence my team. I loved it."

The Leading Cause of Corporate Calamity Is Leaders Who Don't Listen

Corporate silence occurs when employees willfully withhold important work-related information, and has plagued some of the largest global organizations with devastating results. 

6 Reasons Why You Need to Stop Talking and Start Listening

This type of culture, which is often caused by egregious leadership practices, can put your company’s reputation and in some instances, its welfare, at risk. These practices can also negatively impact the productivity and mental health of your employees.

Why did Volkswagen risk so much for small sliver of U.S. market?

Fraud, like any business strategy, is a game of risk and reward. Accounting fraud at Enron and Worldcom, for example, added billions of dollars to the companies’ market value and enriched a whole lot of people before the schemes fell apart.
