Wording Operational Policies to be
Positive and Helpful
Shift your organization's policy-writing culture from confrontational to cooperative.
A healthy organization has a cooperative policy writing culture.
As a leader, you can’t demonstrate that you value teamwork and respect when the corporate policies convey that the objective is obedience.

How to Write Rules That People Want to Follow
A guide to writing respectful policies and directives
Often organizations claim to hold "respect for others" as a core value, but when you look at their policy documents, the story is different. Whether they call them "policies," "standards," or simply "rules," too often they sound like a sergeant barking orders at the troops. That tone of voice might have been acceptable in the past but it is not effective in today's workplace.
Available in both print and electronic versions from your favourite bookstore.
