When workplace culture is good
You’ll see, hear and feel it right in front of you. People know what their job is, they have the skills to do it well, they take ownership and proactively follow up with corrective action when mistakes are made.
Leaders confidently and effectively deal with their team members’ workplace challenges and aren’t afraid to develop and empower their people.
Everyone’s aware in what direction the business intends to head and each individual can define how their role contributes to company goals. They feel their contribution is recognised and, while each person feels valued as an individual, they also take pride in succeeding as a team.
When it’s not good
You really have to ask?
Poor culture: the telltale signs
What factors influence culture?
You can do it! The first steps to change
Personally, I link culture change to engagement….improve engagement and a positive workplace culture will follow. When engagement is high, positive attitudes and behaviours at work lead to improved business outcomes in ways that trigger and reinforce one another. This helps counter the interrelated and interlocked nature of resistance to cultural change.
Notice anything about the above? Zero cost. Why wouldn’t you give it a shot?
