If you don’t create a culture at your company, a culture will create itself. And it won’t be good.

All the best companies share the characteristic of deeply transpersonal cultures. We are only made fully human by putting others before ourselves, a deeply affirming moral stance, grounded in social connection.

These strategies sound so simple, yet, they are so difficult to execute consistently.  From the article:

 

“What Mr. Gilbert and Mr. Emerson have done is create a set of expectations as well as a sense of community and mission.


Employees at Quicken Loans have it hammered into them: care about the customer, sweat every detail, improvise when you need to, always deliver.”


And many, like “We’ll figure it out,” make sense only with elucidation: “Not everything comes with a set of instructions. The innovators of the world are often exploring uncharted territory.”

Chris Carter's curator insight, June 22, 11:56 PM

Albert Einstein once said, "If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes." That is time management.

SBESSCPA's curator insight, August 5, 11:52 AM

 

We all fall into bad habits and many of these bad habits cause us to make ineffective use of our allocation of work time. If you know you need to be a more effective time manager, and you are prepared to address your bad habits and adopt new ones for the sake of your personal effectiveness, then this good article is what you need as a starting point for a better future.

5 Body Language Secrets That Will Help You Gain People's Trust

5 Body Language Secrets That Will Help You Gain People's Trust | Mind Your Business! | Scoop.it

Whether it's in the business world or in personal relations, there is one thing that we all need to get along and be successful: trust. We all strive to have people trust us, but the truth is that trust is often hard to build. Luckily, there are some steps you can take to instantly appear more trustworthy. Here are five body language secrets to help you earn people's trust.

 

1. The eyes have it.

 

The first thing you want to remember when building trust is to keep eye contact. Eye contact is one of those things we subconsciously take note of every time we meet a person. Have you ever tried to have a conversation with a person who was constantly shuffling around and looking in different directions? Sporadic eye contact communicates a lack of interest, distraction, and even dishonesty. Whenever you're speaking, be sure to keep good, steady eye contact.
