Beate Chelette in Starting to Know Podcast

In this episode with Ishu Singh, Beate shared how leadership skills can help you bring more impact to your business. Listen to the episode here.

The 2020 election has reminded us just how divided this country really is and I guarantee that division is having an impact on your workplace unity (whether you’re seeing it or not). Unless you make a deliberate effort to unify your team, those differences in opinion are going to create a rift that may be difficult to reconcile.

It’s easy to recognize that there is a division in the country, especially leading up to inauguration day.

But as a business leader, you need to acknowledge that the rift is not just out there… it’s likely in your organization too.

Look at the numbers: Nearly HALF the country voted for Donald Trump. Now, your company may not perfectly represent the demographics or voting tendencies of the country as a whole. However, you would be remiss to assume that there are not a number of Trump supporters within your ranks who are disappointed and may even feel maligned. At the same time, the opposite may be true. You may lead a team that is largely pro-Trump with a few silent Biden-supporters.

In either instance, the result is the same: I guarantee that you have team members right now who feel they cannot voice their opinions. As such, they do not feel heard or understood. This will have a negative domino effect on your team, their work, and ultimately create a toxic rift in your organization.


Creating a safe space for compassionate dialogue is critical now more than ever. To ignore what’s going on “out there” allows the same subversive hostility to invade your taskforce, undermining your workplace unity.

If you want to avoid the polarization of the 2020 election in your own business, start having a dialogue today!

Let us know below what you’re doing to create a safe space. And if you need help facilitating these conversations, please reach out to me today and we can schedule a complimentary Uncovery Session to get you on the right path.
