How should businesses deal with communication breakdown among leaders and teams? And where do they begin when it comes to clarifying needs and addressing conflict? According to recent guest Tim Franz, the Workplace Covenant is a time-test method for merging the obligations and expectations inherent in any workplace relationship. Listen in to hear how it works and get some valuable insight about fostering meaningful partnership at work. 


  • To truly listen to others, one must listen to understand and make sense of the feelings that the speaker is experiencing.
  • The Workplace Covenant is a method that makes both the leader’s and the team’s implicit needs and desires explicit so that all can work together.
  • Like any other process, the Workplace Covenant must be posted, reviewed in team meetings, and discussed frequently.
  • The underpinning of the meaningful partnership is empathy, respect, trust, and alignment.
