CULTURE CHANGE

A lot has been documented on the importance of culture.

Does culture make a difference?

Does it impact results?

Is it hard to change?

Culture evolves over time and is often driven by the entrepreneur who founded the organization. The founder usually possesses strong beliefs and values that over time become imbedded in the organization. If these are accredited to the company’s success they can become difficult to change. The word “alignment” is critical for those of us who are serious about this subject. It starts with a strategy, goals and values that support each other. If you need Innovation and change then you best start selecting for people who are naturally good at both.

Culture Flow for Your Organization

“Your company values are the DNA of your culture.” For your values to flow through your organization, they must co-exist and not contradict each other or your desired culture. More importantly they must be aligned with how your organization operates and executes every day.
