Culture Defined: Set of values that manifest the behavior and ritual

Basically: How we interact and treat each other and our customer

Companies with strong cultures outperform companies with weak cultures virtually every time because:

  • People who share values work together better and achieve more.
  • When people love working at a company they work harder.
  • Companies with a great reputation & culture attract and retain great talent & customers.

Creating a great corporate culture started on the day your company had it’s beginning.

It’s strengthened or weakened with:

  • every hire
  • the actions the leaders take and the behaviors they model
  • the rituals the company follows
  • the behaviors that are rewarded or disciplined
  • and the way everyone is treated in good times and bad times

Exercise:

How would you describe your culture now? And the way you want it to be?

List the good and the bad. What needs work?
Remember that a great culture is critical to a company’s success

Lose sight of it at your own peril.
