Ultimately, Culture Determines success
Many leaders think that culture is an ambiguous and fluffy term when it comes to organisational performance. It is not. Culture characterises the attitudes, behaviours, habits, and disciplines for how things get accomplished in your organisation. Ultimately, culture determines success. It’s worth looking at the following questions to get a sense of your organisation’s culture.
What one word best describes your culture (e.g., bureaucratic, entrepreneurial, competitive, collaborative, individualistic e.t.c.)?
What are the predominant habits that you see in your organisation that lead to great performance?
What are the predominant habits that you see in your organisation that lead to performance that is below your expectations?
How well does your executive or management team model the part of your culture that you like best?
How well does your executive or management team model the part of your culture that you like least?
When it comes to your organisation’s culture, what are you tolerating that is negatively affecting performance?
What is your commitment to creating the best possible culture for your organisation?
What, if anything, gets in the way of your commitment?
