“I've always found it important that everyone can speak out at work. This is because I believe that a culture of accountability contributes to a learning organisation. However, in practice, it's not always easy, especially if you call someone to account who is hierarchically your superior. I recently found myself in precisely this situation and I missed the support, leadership, and safety I needed from the organisation. In my opinion, Radboud University still has a lot to learn in this respect. What helped me at the time was the support I received from my colleagues. My message is therefore: seek out your colleagues, and join forces to speak up about what you find important. This helps to turn personal leadership into more than just a euphemism for lack of leadership elsewhere in the organisation, instead making it into a power for collective change.”
