2 Highlights From This Episode
1. Why is Culture Important?

They resort to “work faster” which is unsustainable and unhelpful. If people are enabled to be the best they can be, then they can produce the best work. With the right resources, autonomy, support, expertise and leadership our teams can make better decisions… faster.With the right resources, autonomy, support, expertise and leadership our teams can make better decisions... faster. @akajoshlevine Click To Tweet
The way you provide these is done through Culture. Culture is the platform on which everything runs. Culture is the cause and effect of every decision we make. If you don’t fix the culture everything else is a band-aid. It’s all about the people.
2. Rituals & Cues
Rituals and Cues are 2 of the 6 components of what makes a culture.
Rituals are how we build and strengthen relationships and relationships are the synapses of culture. The more an organization grows the more difficult is it to keep everyone in relationship.
Cues are reminders of why we’re here.
These are physical, behavioral and digital reminders of the vision and purpose behind what we do. Every manager has to get creative and come up with ways to keep their teams focus. You have to be the culture change you wish to see in your world.
