3 Lessons From Ford on Why Company Culture Really Does Matter | Maximizing Human Potential | Scoop.it

The 2008 recession was shocking to many for many reasons, not least of which was the failure or near failure of very large companies that had become institutions in the minds of many.

It has to be about more than a single person — it truly has to be about the business.

John Michel's curator insight, November 20, 2013 5:43 AM

Should your company and industry find itself in a similar position as Ford and the U.S. auto industry, how would your organization weather the storm? What would sustain you and support both individuals and the company as a whole to succeed even in the toughest of business environments?

Terence R. Egan's curator insight, November 22, 2013 10:35 AM

 

[KEY POINTS]

 

Ford's components of success

 

- One Company / One Team

We’re all in this together, working towards the same goal.

 

- Behaviors matter in everyone

The same fundamental behaviors that drive our success are required from all Ford employees.

 

- Success is easier when personal and company values align

Your personal work style may not mesh (fit) with how we work at Ford. There’s no value judgment, but you’ll be more successful in another organization.

 

Noticing good work, and recognizing it

 

(Ford has) a process and system in place to encourage and support ... (everyone) to notice the good work of others in line the core values.

 

With everyone (involved), the desired behaviors become much better understood, (modelled and normalized).

 

(We can) then easily track the desired behaviors (and provide) additional intervention and training as needed.

 

[In this key area of implementation, the information is scant.]

Great article on leadership and collaborative team building, “The most effective form of leadership is supportive. It is collaborative. It is never assigning a task, role or function to another that we ourselves would not be willing to perform. For all practical purposes, leading well is as simple as remembering to remain others-centered instead of self-centered.”

Matthew Fritz's curator insight, August 27, 11:27 AM

There is no secret-recipe for effective leadership that is guaranteed to work in all situations.  The secret sauce for success is found in managing and developing the facets of leadership that apply to your environment.  The key to employing these facets is to study those around you—examples, both good and bad—to understand the effects and the results of leadership action.

William Rowell's curator insight, August 29, 12:19 AM

Matt highlights four facets of leadership that can apply to your business, your sports team, your church, and your family…”the human element of military leadership is most evident—the ability of a leader to inspire action through the successful combination of persona, credibility, resource management and intuition—and the masters of this element become the subjects of tomorrow’s history books.”
