In #CORPORATE CULTURE tweet Book01, S. Chris Edmonds starts at the very beginning--by showing you how to recognize an organization's culture and identify what a healthy workplace culture looks, acts, and sounds like. This may sound trivial, but it is not. Oftentimes, surface appearances are deceptive and you need to dig a little to learn the truth. An organization that appears healthy and happy may have large numbers of low-productivity, demotivated employees. Conversely an organization that appears to have plateaued or be driven by a handful of strong personalities may, counter to intuition, boast of stellar performers and consistently upbeat results.
Having shown you how to recognize a healthy organization, the author uncovers the power of 'boss behavior.' Most of us remember our best boss ever, a person who created a work environment that enabled us to perform at our best while being incredibly satisfied with our boss, team, and work. Chris describes how great bosses behave to ensure that organizational culture standards are maintained and reinforced each day.
Just as culture change is hard for individuals, it is difficult for organizations. It takes discipline and effort to focus on culture management day in and day out. Which is why Chris also engages us on accountability behaviors and actions that ensure that the desired organizational culture is embedded and acted upon.
