Impacting the Culture - Part 3

While there is no silver bullet, no one magic answer for improving the culture of your organization, in this series (part 1, part 2), I have offered a number of ideas for getting started.  There are ways that have been tried and tested. It is possible to undertake the journey toward impacting your organization's culture in a meaningful way.


"If you want to change the culture, you will have to start by changing yourself."


To sum up, here is a little "magic"


Mirror - Look into the mirror. It all starts there. Know thyself.


Assess - Assess your own current impact on your organization's culture.


Gather - Gather input from the system, members and stakeholders.


Imagine - Imagine your organization at its best.


Convene - Convene everyone around making positive change.


So go forth and make a difference in your culture!


Bonus Thought:  One additional idea came from a colleague this morning:  Follow the example of the TV show Undercover Boss. Go to your front-line and find out first-hand what their jobs are like. See for yourself. Talk to your employees. Listen. Gather in the great ideas that are already present in your system.
