Creating Culture

Culture is tricky to define but I like this explanation:

…Because your culture is how your company makes decisions when you’re not there. It’s the set of assumptions your employees use to resolve the problems they face every day. It’s how they behave when no-one’s looking. If you don’t methodically set your culture, then two-thirds of it will end up being accidental, and the rest will be a mistake.

When I think about this subject, I think about the routines, rituals and standards that are important to create a team of leaders.

These blogs are the hard-won lessons and I hope they help you too.

Cheers!
