Every company has a culture

All companies have a culture, only the ones built by design sustain long-term growth.

Is this really true?

Think of it this way…

All humans are given a body but only the ones who purposefully use common sense to intentionally care for it sustain a higher degree of wellness.

The main reason organizational culture change fails

iPhone calculator
Yesterday’s published blog total. Today it changes to 12,702.

 

The main reason organizational culture change fails is because CEO’s are focused on technical changes instead of adaptive changes.

The cultural disfunction never gets better because CEO’s are attacking symptoms, not causes.

This becomes an insidious pattern of dependency.

Meaning, the sense of urgency, and the fire drills to put out the fires are something people respond well to because the culture is reactive rather than proactive. And there is a “high” you get from “being productive” (putting out fires).

No one (stereotypically) in the organization with influence knows how to be proactive. At least that’s what it feels like to nearly everyone on the front line.

This is where i come in.

Reference: Ronald Heifetz, the nature of adaptive leadership on You Tube.

Apple has held the Most Admired Company designation eight consecutive years.

There’s one Company that would like to give them a break from the top.

Exceptionally high expectations don’t make a company, or a person, arrogant.

Be unwilling to be comfortable backing off.

To get this angle takes special awareness.

 

One of the most difficult challenges we will ever undertake is the opportunity to live life so that if anyone ever said anything bad about us, no one would believe it.

Apple has been the most admired company in the world for seven straight years.

This is the DNA of the overachiever.

And the game changer.

How quickly can we get to, and articulate concisely, what we really say we value?

Anything less than instantaneously is an opportunity for improvement.
