Most companies want their employees to thrive and be productive and realize their full potential. But how?
And what makes a company a great place to work?
The answer is culture.
The best way to describe culture is to look at it as the company’s personality. Company culture is the collection of common values, norms, expectations, and perceptions of reality that develop among the employees.
Most leaders understand that leadership and strategy are linked to achieving goals. Building a corporate culture is at least as important, and the best leaders are fully aware of how a great culture can impact their business results.
However, in our experience, many leaders who wants to establish a high-performing team delegate the responsibility of building culture to the HR function, where it becomes a secondary concern for the business.
What leaders must do instead, is to use the culture that operates in their company as a fundamental management tool. It is the leader’s responsibility to lead by example, inspire a shared vision, and have a continuous focus on culture development.
Developing a great company culture should be a top leadership priority. Only when a successful company culture is established, can the company become a place where people really thrive.
It is the leader who can model what “success looks like” who will keep the organization headed in the right direction.
