What is the Relationship Between Culture and Strategy

What is the Relationship Between Culture and Strategy | Leadership | Scoop.it

Corporate culture is an incredibly powerful factor in a company’s long-term success. No matter how good your strategy is, when it comes down to it, people always make the difference. Strategy is rational and culture is emotional.

Good one on strategy. I really like the simple definition of strategy.

Russ Bergeman's curator insight, June 28, 2013 9:36 AM

Strategy is what drives the organization as a whole... Organizations are complex interrelationships of human beings... Culture is the human element of the organization.

How to Manage Someone Who Rubs You the Wrong Way

How to Manage Someone Who Rubs You the Wrong Way | Leadership | Scoop.it

When I started my first company, I hired people I knew and loved.  I thought, Why wouldn't I want to work with my friends all day?

In many cases that worked out fine. Then my company began to grow beyond my circle of friends. The talents required for success became a bigger priority than the camaraderie.

 

I was usually able to find people who fit the culture and the job description and whom I also enjoyed spending time with. But every once in a while the person I needed to hire just wasn't my cup of tea. And while we shared mutual respect, spending time with this person became a chore, as did the experience of managing him or her.

You can't love everyone who works for you. Here we share how to manage talented people who you find irritating.

(From the article): It's not that uncommon in larger companies to have employees who do a great job but their personality just rubs you the wrong way.  People are people and not everyone can be totally dispassionate. But a great manager can put aside their personal feelings and look objectively. I have mostly found that those people who make me uncomfortable are often my greatest teachers.

I think we all run into people that irritate us and this article from inc.com has some good pointers for overcoming irritation.  I wouldn't characterize it as "managing" irritating people, because we manage things.  We lead people, even those who irritate us, through influence and everyday leadership approaches to get the job or mission accomplished.
