    The cause cannot always be the company; instead, it
    must also be managers’ pursuit of their own values within the company.
    This isn’t licensing chaos; it is ensuring control. There is no
    more reliable way for the company to become the cause than by not
    always insisting on being the cause.
    Can companies trust their managers to remain committed to the
    enterprise if they’re free to live their values at work? If you’re managing
    managers, here’s a sure way to tell: Could you trust yourself?
    If the answer is yes, the same trust can be extended throughout the
    management population of your company.
    Human behavior is only unpredictable and dangerous if you don’t
    start from humanity in the first place. To safely trust managers, a
    company must allow them to do the things that real leaders do for the
    reasons that real leaders do them. The company must allow itself to
    be the best possible place for managers to practice true fulfillment, to
    live their values and to realize deep connectivity and purpose.
    This is the system managers will protect. This is the system managers
    dream about.
