Recent and unfortunate research into workplace misconduct shows how common it is for people to sympathize with perpetrators rather than their victims. I think there’s a tidbit of guidance here for leaders who want to avoid this fate, however: the research showed that people who “endorse values such as deference to authority, in-group loyalty, and purity” were more likely to disbelieve accusations. That strikes me as a list of values we can and should purge from our workplaces; in their place we can cultivate egalitarianism, healthy conflict, and transparency—all of which make us safer and more likely to succeed where other teams do not.
