Culture isn't an end in itself. It's the engine that enables the business to win in the marketplace. In a successful organisation, it also shapes every aspect of the leadership conversation. And, if you get it right, it's the one thing the competition can't copy.
Moving beyond today's crisis isn't simply about having a better plan. To come out of this stronger means thinking differently about the business that will emerge. Some aspects, those that make the business special, must be protected. Other elements will have to be transformed. Elsewhere, the challenge means initiating "a new beginning".
Pulling everything together; the container that allows diversity to flourish; the system that provides meaning and supports momentum; the performance platform that enables a winning value proposition - are described by one simple term: "Culture". The challenge? The culture conversation we have now will determine not only what is possible but, more importantly … what becomes possible!
When tomorrow will be different, it's not enough to continuously improve on what you have always done. Two things are clear:
- Today's leaders see culture as essential to future success.
- Though it may be important, top teams don't spend much meaningful time on it.
The central question becomes "why?"
That culture is perceived as a slippery and esoteric concept is the start of it. That measurement is largely ignored is also clearly part of it. But the heart of it? Top teams struggle in knowing how to have the culture conversation.
