My fundamental thoughts concerning culture within organisations can be summarised in seven points:
So, first of all, a conception of man needs to be consciously developed.This can then go on to form the basis for a set of values that will be binding for all members of that organisation – based on which, a suitable leadership model can be developed. This leadership model then needs to be brought to the attention of the managers within the organisation in an appropriate way and consistently insisted upon over the course of time.
While the cultural analysis, and associated development of the target image is possible in a manageable period of just a few months, noticeable and sustainable cultural changes are a process that takes place over several years. So, it’s a marathon, not a sprint! But it is a rewarding, if at times tough, path. Ultimately, culture is the identity-forming factor of every organisation par excellence and a central competitive factor – a “USP” that has to be consciously moulded.
If you’ve read this far and still feel an inclination to work with me, I very much look forward to hearing from you.
