How to create a Learning Culture and help your organization grow

How to create a Learning Culture and help your organization grow | Corporate Culture and OD | Scoop.it
You can’t touch it, or smell it, or taste it. But you know it’s there.

It’s like a feeling, an energy, something that moves you to act without predetermination or intention.

And no, it’s not your favorite Beatles song, making you tap your foot to the rhythm like a puppet on a string. We’re talking about something far more powerful, and slightly more constructive.

We’re talking, of course, about organizational culture.

Organizational What?

Initially sidelined as a ‘wishy-washy HR concept’, organizational culture has earned its recognition as one of the most influential assets an organization can possess today.

A unique, immeasurable combination of the shared intellect, informal habits, attitudes and knowledge that shape how you do business. Like an invisible perfume scenting every team, process, and task.

And because it’s intangible, organizational culture is one of the few assets that are inimitable. Unlike technologies, ideas, and skills, which are frequently copied by the competition, this asset remains unique to the business in which it lives. A key competitive advantage.

Sounds great, doesn’t it?

Interesting, they state: "Lack of senior management and not enough resources were selected as the top two reasons why organizations do not actively manage culture" but I find poor communications and lack of transparency more critical.

How to Preserve Your Company Culture While Scaling Your Business

How to Preserve Your Company Culture While Scaling Your Business | Corporate Culture and OD | Scoop.it
Growing your business is a good thing. But sometime while you are growing your revenues, customers, and your staff expands you may face new management challenges in your business. There are often struggles with cash flow, building new processes and maintaining your company culture. There’s a big difference between being a mom and pop shop to adding managers to your business.

When your business is small, it is easy to adopt a casual company culture where employees get their work done on their own timeframe rather than punching a clock. But what happens when you have a much larger team and multiple projects to manage? You will need to put formal processes in place as it may become difficult to hold a larger staff accountable for deliverables.

Here’s how you can find that balance between scaling your business and keeping your company culture.

Org Physics: How a triad of structures allows companies to absorb complexity

Org Physics: How a triad of structures allows companies to absorb complexity | Corporate Culture and OD | Scoop.it
Within the three structures of organizations, thee three kinds of leadership reside. All important, but dramatically out of balance in most organizations we know:

Compliance Leadership - emerging from Formal Structure.
Social Leadership - emerging from Informal Structure.
Value Creation Leadership - emerging from Value Creation Structure.

Following this thought, there is not "leadership". But "leaderships". Just like the three structures they emerge from, these types of leadership are interdependent and complex, not independent or linear. In the presence of too much hierarchy, or formal power, the two other kinds of leadership are actually quite impossible to happen: Social density and connection will deteriorate. Members of the organization will find it harder to get the work done, while they game fhe formal structure and its complicated mechanics of steering and control. Organizational energy is wasted on bureaucracy (Formal Structure), and self-defence against command-and-control from the top, carried out within Informal Structure.
