Culture, culture, culture. I’ve heard time and time again on CEO Exclusive that organizational culture is the single biggest factor that drives any institution’s success. Yet the nuts and bolts of building an effective, high-performing, internally consistent company culture are subtle and challenging. A part of our mission on the show is to support you in bringing a great culture to life.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be covering approaches to developing and maintaining a conscious culture, leading up to a breakfast panel I’ll be moderating with Raj Sisodia, Co-Chairman of Conscious Capitalism and co-author of the seminal work that helped launch the movement.
Stop. Did you see that? After two years of covering Conscious Capitalism on CEO Exclusive, I get to lead a conversation with the guy who literally wrote the book. Yay!!!!!!
I hope you’ll join us. Click here to register. We’ll be covering Raj’s Field Guide to implementing Conscious Capitalism and his new book, The Healing Organization—which explains how to develop a caring, compassionate, (and of course) conscious culture.
As a start, here are the self-audit statements on culture that you can consider over the next few weeks. Raj will discuss these with a panel of CEOs at the breakfast.
- Our company’s culture has a high degree of trust and transparency internally and externally. There is high trust among employees, between employees and management, and between the company and its external stakeholders.
- In our culture, we say what we mean and we mean what we say. There is no sugarcoating of tough reality, and there is a high level of commitment to truth and integrity in all matters.
- We operate within a culture of genuine caring and compassion for all stakeholders. When times get tough, our company exhibits an even higher level of caring and compassion than in prosperous times. There is a real sense of altruism in our culture. People do things for others with no expectation of a return, reward, or recognition.
- Our people and our organization are continually evolving to higher states of capability and consciousness.
- Employees in our company are empowered to always do the right thing. We use self-managing, self-motivated, and self-directed teams to accomplish our work.
