Define Your Culture Before It Defines You

Define Your Culture Before It Defines You | High performing business culture | Scoop.it
The truth is that your organization is going to have a culture whether you, as the leader, define it or not. Even the lack of culture is, in and of itself, a culture. So the question is: will you step up and define your culture?

Culture’s Critical Role in Change Management

Culture’s Critical Role in Change Management | High performing business culture | Scoop.it
A new survey shows that when executives fail to focus on culture, their change initiatives founder.

...it is easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than it is to think your way into a new way of acting.

 

  ________________________________


Excerpted:  ....those who work with and within their existing culture to change critical behaviors have more success than those who try to change their culture.

     

Said another way, it is easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than it is to think your way into a new way of acting.

 

....Overall, change initiatives are only adopted and sustained about half the time, our survey shows. But when companies tap into the energy and emotional commitment that are bound up in their cultures, change initiatives are far more sustainable.

How leaders create a culture of purpose from @tshnall | High performing business culture | Scoop.it

Recent study from the annual Deloitte Core Beliefs and Culture Survey indicate several common grounds for both employees and leaders. Fundamentally employers have a key role to play in unleashing potential and talent and creating a working environment where employees can freely be themselves and go beyond the call of duty. This post from my friend @tshnall points to a key industry trend in employees being considered as brand ambassadors. This in turn becomes the key success ingredient to attract customers and build brand loyalty. Kudos Tal!

Greg Lustig's curator insight, October 17, 2013 11:22 AM

In order to create a culture of innovation in the workplace,an organization must empower their employees to engage in independent thought processes.In  order to do so, employees must first be fully engaged and vested in the success of their company.Open discussion between all levels of the organization must  be encouraged.Companies need to be transparent in order to make their employees feel that they are an integral part of the business process.Lastly,employees must believe that their opinions matter.

Albert Einstein had it right when he said: “We cannot solve our problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”  With that being said it is time for entrepreneurial and small business owner of companies to step up their innovation creativity.

 

We have big dreamers and ideas that are always seem too left behind. In this article companies and small business revaluated how they allow their employee to make contributes to building a better brand. The question that was explored by most CEO's is, How to make this work environment a more engaging involvement for idea.

 

Well, some companies do this by creating a designated space where employees can be creative. Most office spaces, which are normally a sea of cubicles, have little room physically and emotionally where creativity and innovation can flourish.

 

From a PR stand Point that is brilliant idea because for those companies that still have their employee work in cubicles is only limiting them to that confined space. Also making that change in the office space can build a better bond between employee and employer. Provide an opportunity for employee to shine.

 

In relations to the book this can relate to Chapter 3 employee relations.  Employee Relations involves the body of work concerned with maintaining employer-employee relationships that contribute to satisfactory productivity, motivation, and morale. Essentially, Employee Relations is concerned with preventing and resolving problems involving individuals who arise out of or affect work situations.

 

So for those companies and business that have your employees still concealed to their cubicle and office space re-think and evaluate the amount of new and creative ideas that your employees produce for the better of the company.on page 33 in the Adventure book Kathryn Yates of Watson Wyatt,  stated "that a business function that drives performance and contributes to a company's financial success,".
