Steps to a great culture
Here are my eight steps to building a great organisational culture:
STEP ONE – THE TWO V’S
Make sure that your vision, your values and your HR objectives all line up, and always give people good examples of what is expected of them.
STEP TWO – OBSESSED ABOUT PEOPLE
Be as obsessed about your internal customers as you are about your external customers.
STEP THREE – LEADERSHIP BY EXAMPLE
No method is more effective than a good example.
STEP FOUR – COMMUNICATION, COMMUNICATION, COMMUNICATION
If there isn’t a good reason why you shouldn’t communicate something, then share it!
STEP FIVE – RECRUIT TO FIT
Recruit for attitude, skills can be learnt!
STEP SIX – CONSCIOUS ENVIRONMENT
Use your environment to drive innovation by providing stimulus rather than blank space.
STEP SEVEN – DON’T BE AFRAID TO BE DIFFERENT
Employ different competencies to drive innovation.
STEP EIGHT – RELENTLESS APPROACH
Consistency is key.
