5 Ways to Create a Winning Culture

5 Ways to Create a Winning Culture | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
A strong culture isn't something you wish into place, or even will into place. It's something you build. Here's how.

All great points... particularly # 3. Without trust, not much else can happen.
AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, May 15, 2013 1:17 PM

Tpotally agree with Don on item #5.  I also like #3.

 

Create an environment of trust.

Many organizations believe internal trust is nice to have but not a key factor for bottom line profitability. That simply isn’t true. Trust directly affects speed and cost. When trust diminishes, speed goes down and costs go up. These economic factors are usually disguised as other things, but when there isn’t trust between team members, or between the company and its customers, it is impossible to achieve real success. The myths are that trust is built solely on integrity, that you either have it or you don’t, that if lost it can’t be restored, and that it can’t be taught. The realities are that trust is a function of both character and competency, it can be both created and destroyed, it can be restored (in most cases), and be taught and developed into a measurable strategic advantage.

The Procrastination Doom Loop - and How to Break It

The Procrastination Doom Loop - and How to Break It | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

When scientists have studied procrastination, they've typically focused on how people are miserable at weighing costs and benefits across time.


In the last few years, however, scientists have begun to think that procrastination might have less to do with time than emotion. Procrastination "really has nothing to do with time-management,” Joseph Ferrari, a professor of psychology at DePaul University, told Psychological Science. “To tell the chronic procrastinator to just do it would be like saying to a clinically depressed person, cheer up.”

Daniel Watson's curator insight, June 1, 6:50 PM


Owning a business, puts one in a position where a multiplicity of roles needs to be accommodated, until such a time as the business is large enough and profitable enough, to employ qualified professionals in key areas. Often businesses fail because the business owners do not know, or do not understand, the key hats they must continually wear as they grow their businesses. This article identifies each of these key hats and then shares why each is critical to a business wanting to succeed.

Train Your Brain To Let Go Of Habits – 10 Methods For Creating New Neural Pathways

Train Your Brain To Let Go Of Habits – 10 Methods For Creating New Neural Pathways | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
When you understand how neural pathways are created in the brain, you get a front row seat for truly comprehending how to let go of habits. Neural pathways are like superhighways of nerve cells that transmit messages. You travel over the superhighway many times, and the pathway becomes more and more solid. You may go to a specific food or cigarettes for comfort over and over, and that forms a brain pathway. The hopeful fact, however, is that the brain is always changing and you can forge new pathways and create new habits. That’s called the neuroplasticity of the brain.

I used to drive with one foot on the brake and the other on the accelerator, and I wanted to train myself to drive with one foot only. It took some time, as I had a strong neural pathway for two-footed driving. But because I had the will to do it, I built a new pathway, and I rewired or reprogrammed my brain. You can remove a behavior or thought or addictions directly from the brain.

Because of neuroplasticity, the brain’s ever-changing potentials, anything is possible. People who’ve had strokes can retrain their brains to function again by building new pathways. Smokers and overeaters and many others can learn new behaviors and attitudes and can transform their lives.

Whether you work with others on their habits or you work with your own (or both), you can apply these understandings to boost your success.

Incremental growth happens inside of your comfort zone – exponential growth happens outside of your comfort zone - your discomfort zone.

Think of public speaking, networking, leaving your job and starting something new, cold calling, conflict, saying no, taking an unpopular stance when you think it’s right, challenging inappropriate behaviour etc.

It's better to live in faith than fear.
