One of the most compelling yet misunderstood concepts in business is related to the power of organization culture. Culture holds the promise of helping the collective of the organization’s members focus on similar goals and objectives and of encouraging cohesiveness in purpose and intent. However, in reality most leaders and organization members alike find that organization culture is a constraint, a burden, and a barrier rather than an enabler to strategy and performance.
Despite these mixed outcomes, organization culture is a powerful influence. The key is to determine how to shape, guide or create the culture that will lead to positive results and distinctiveness. It has been argued that the only sustainable differentiation is the organization’s culture. So, executives should be tuned into their organization’s culture and how they can guide it and shape it to deliver the needed influence.
While there are countless books, theories, programs, assessments, and approaches to addressing culture, there are some foundational principles that can help executives rein in and gain control of their culture (rather than being controlled by it). What are these principles? How can these principles be used to shape your company’s culture? What are the consequences of ignoring these principles?
