The Culture Is Only As Good As The Leader | Organizational Behavisor | Scoop.it

From article : A company’s culture grows, in many ways, from the top down. Leadership is the real root of any organization — the vital source from which all energy, vision, values and style manifest themselves

[KEY POINTS in Plain English]

 

There’s a misunderstanding that employees create a company’s culture — for example: how they dress, how they do business and how they communicate. If you observe a company’s employees, it is easy to think they’re both the result and the creators (cause)  of the culture.

 

But Leadership is the real foundation of any organization's culture.

 

The leader is the visionary who sets the direction and style of the company’s personality. The leader creates internal culture through the people s/he hires, the information s/he provides and the resources s/he makes available.

 

Leadership ultimately (finally) determines the culture of a company. The leader develops it and maintains it — whether it is good or bad.

 

But if you’re the creator of an unhealthy culture, you can also be its cure.

 

[Or, is it better to hire a new, transformational leader to implement  the required change?]

I love the concept of "hiring for passion and fit first, then competence" as the latter can be taught...
