How to Grow a Company Culture

How do we create a work environment we're proud of?

There’s no doubt that there’s a BIG difference between the values written on corporate letterhead and the reality of so-called company culture. At Management 3.0, we want to change the world of work and company  culture is a huge part of that.

Values and Culture - Slide03

Clarity of values can make a significant contribution toward good behavior and better culture. The primary function of leadership is to nurture culture through values. Ask your team:

  • What do we care about?
  • What do we want to be?
  • How do we want to act?
  • Now, how do we define our values to define behavior and improve results?

Your job as leader is to cultivate those values and culture by building frameworks that enable societal value, with consistency and trustworthiness.

But you CANNOT plan culture. And you CANNOT invite or discourage certain behaviors. And you really CANNOT benchmark ethical thought.

Pick your values. Use these values to create guideposts. Share value stories and create a work expo as a visual reminder of those values at the office. You can even create days where your company focuses on these chosen values, sharing your own stories and sharing them with stories of other organizations. Create a video to celebrate the values and stories you’ve shared. Post in on the company intranet or really show off your company values and post it on social media.

Don’t Wait! Start the values conversation today!

And then learn valuable games and exercises to do with your team to enhance those values and to grow a company culture, by attending a Management 3.0 event near you!
