What We’re Thinking

You have likely heard the phrase, “Culture starts at the top.” While there is certainly merit to this statement, it’s not the full story. Organizational culture is shaped by shared patterns of values and behaviors that define the social and psychological environment within a group. You see “culture” everywhere—within your family, friends, fitness studio, department, and certainly in your company overall. The first step is acknowledging the culture.

If it doesn’t, the vision is not shaping the company culture, but rather is in danger of being shaped by the loudest voice in the room—and sometimes that voice is not the voice you want shaping the vision. So how do you ensure clarity? Here are three questions to consider when determining your vision.

What do you want most for your business, your family…and you? How do all of these wants align with the actual work you do and the decisions you are making for your company?
Asking yourself these questions is the first step to gaining clarity. When you have clarity about what you are working towards, you are able to both prioritize and naturally align with those life/business practices that are effective in achieving your goal.
Whether you are a business owner, leader or professional at any level, you have heard the stats by Forbes:
- 40% of people are planning on switching jobs next year.
- 69% of employees are searching for a new position while on the clock with your organization.
Does it sound like these employees are effectively serving customers, crushing company goals, or engaged in the organization’s culture? Seeing that people are the single greatest factor in the success or decline of an organization, it would seem there is a big problem.Read More
