Hypocrisy in Business

Sometimes, people say one thing and do another. Sometimes it happens at work. And when you see it happening, it can make you feel angry, frustrated, or deflated. Is hypocrisy a problem at your organization?

When you look around at the interactions in your company, notice how often people tell each other one thing and clearly believe another. This might manifest as sarcasm or as secret-keeping. But often, it’s plain old hypocrisy.

Some hypocrisy is normal in life. After all, most of us think rule-following is important but we might speed when we are late. The question is what is normal and what is toxic?  We all seem to live with some degree of fear and anxiety.  Sometimes we chose to mislead each other to protect ourselves from conflict by not bringing things up.  Sometimes we have corporate information we just cannot pass along and don’t know how to say that without misleading others.

We’ve talked before about lying in the job search process and about when employers lie about advancement opportunities. But hypocrisy feels different. That’s because it’s a special kind of untruth: when someone says one thing, and does the opposite of what they just said.

No one should expect to work for a company where everyone is 100% honest 100% of the time. But if the dishonest you are seeing is hypocrisy, that’s a sign you might want to move on.

    I see this all the time. Usually you can find it in the motivational posters: "People are our #1 priority." "With teamwork, everyone wins."

    I could fill a book with stories I've heard personally about people saying one thing and doing another at the office.
