From time to time, we get asked to help a client define their own unique “Company Culture”. It is a fascinating exercise, takes time, absolute honesty and authenticity and patient collaboration at all levels in the organisation.
According to Wikipedia ….
“Culture is the social behavior and norms found in human societies.”
Essentially, we believe, it is about how we behave towards one another, and why we behave that way. We behave the way we do because we believe it to be the best way we know to achieve what we seek to achieve … together!
So the culture of our client company is its collection of shared norms or beliefs – its “Company Values” – which drive behaviour towards one another and towards their stakeholders. These are inspired by excited consensus as to what they want to achieve – our “Vision” and “Mission”.
Achieving harmony and then making the Values truly live is a tough challenge, especially in larger organizations.
Agreeing and defining the destination they are to seek with passion is often even tougher especially in the new Quantum World of almost infinite and ever changing risks and opportunities.
But no matter how well these crucial covenants are defined, nothing happens without Energy ….. Human Energy!
High energy, fully engaged staff and Trust, with a capital ‘T’ make the exercise, and then the Journey, a legend.
Negative energy, disengaged staff and distrust, destroy it.
Helping an organisation go through this process successfully and creating high levels of sustainable energy to drive it towards its dream, is what we believe we do best.
