Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 07FEB11

“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!

This week’s focus: leadership

A colleague has been asked to take on an assignment to “fix the culture” of a company and was seeking advice about how to proceed with a proposal. I wondered, “How do you fix a company’s culture when culture is really a composite of many attributes?”

Culture is homogenized from attitudes, beliefs, behaviors, business execution, actual and perceived standing in the marketplace, etc. You have to move the needle on the underlying aspects of culture to move the needle on culture.

Improve the behaviors, beliefs, behaviors, business execution, etc., and you change the culture—this will ensure your company thrives.

Thought for the week:

“Look beyond yourself and see how our differences can pull us together, not push us apart.” – F. Canna

Note: I welcome your blog comments!
