5 Startup Founders Reveal Their Best Company Culture Tips | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it
We spoke with startup founders known for instilling strong culture for tips on building culture at every stage of a startup.

Via Marylene Delbourg-Delphis
Samuel Pavin's insight:

Company culture is indeed major. That is the founding stone impacting both employees and customers behaviour and appreciation of the company.

That is also linked to UX in the way that dedicated employees (understanding and adopting the company's values) will definitely provide customers with a better experience or, at least, strive to do so. And in a current world where competitors are everywhere, service and quality are key.

The #4 Tip is one of the most misunderstood in Western Culture (particularly). People cannot be motivated. You can only build a culture where they motivative themselves. We have been gravely misled by behavrior psychology, based on the study of rats, that we are setting up a maze for people to run. Unless you manage rats, the research is most irrelevant. I write at length in my last book, The REsponsible Business, about why this is false research for business cultures. And what to do instead. Learning to tap what people are motivated by, but finding significant and meaningful offerings for stakeholders OUTSIDE the business, e.g. customers, Earch, community, awakens motives they can connect to. Asking them to contribute to those is the only way to tied them to you efforts. It does not work to tied them to the goals of the business except to a limited degree. Not enough to innovate and grow a business. Grow Stakeholder Success is the path. Many examples and stories of Fortune 500 and entrepreneurs I was blessed to oc-create such systems over almost 40 years are in the book.

I am just out from a meeting with a startup where, conveniently enough, I actually spoke about selling and what was needed.

Perfect fit.

And a major topic for any startup out there. At some point sales are needed to get money in.
