Organizational Culture

Organizational culture is not made with rules, procedures, processes, and systems. It does not come as a result of publishing your mission, vision, and values. It is not a communication problem, either.

The elements of a great organizational culture include

  1. A clear, compelling, and commonly-understood focus.
  2. The right people, in the right roles, collaborating with win-win, and generating the right results.
  3. A method for exposing obstructive personal and organizational beliefs and assumptions. And a method for replacing those with constructive beliefs.
  4. Practical tools for knowing what could be done and selecting what to do that is in line with the focus and desired results.

While a great organizational culture can happen by chance, you can engineer it in new and existing organizations. You just have to get started.

 

In your corner,
