Culture…it’s the way we do things around here. Or maybe more specifically, it’s the way we engage and connect with one another to get things done. It’s the result of shared experiences, behaviors, and values, and it transforms an organization from a group of individuals to a cohesive whole.
No matter how you define it, organizational culture has faced dramatic—likely permanent—changes in the wake of COVID-19. Abrupt transitions to remote work, forcing new modes of communication. Rebuilt business strategies with no guarantees of success. The ever-present need for a workforce to do more with less. Now more than ever, culture matters, and organizations must face the very real choice between actively shaping a culture that supports business recovery or letting culture emerge in a way that drags down morale, collaboration, and performance.
The choice seems clear, yet actively shaping culture remains one of the hardest things to do. Why? Because culture isn’t crafted in the board room. It’s the collection of thousands of moments, interactions, and choices made by people every day. Culture doesn’t improve in a single event. It’s built and reinforced over time through the ongoing and conscious effort toward a shared vision. Culture doesn’t transform by itself—it needs a catalyst.
