The legendary guru Peter Drucker said: “Culture eats strategy for lunch.”
Drucker pointedly identified and articulated the keys to success in business.
Culture is the embodied values, principles and practices underlying the stuff of a business… the way we do things around here.
Culture, connects all stakeholders to each other and to the company’s purpose, people and processes.
Why should anyone care about your culture?
… Now substitute ‘customers’ for ‘employees’ and see what that means.
Read those same sentences above.
… Now substitute ‘employees’ for ‘prospective employees’.
… Now substitute ‘prospective employees’ for ‘suppliers’.
… Now substitute suppliers for ‘financiers’.
So, why would anyone care about your culture?
Because it counts… big time.
Your actions speak so loudly I can barely hear what you are saying!!
