What is the culture of your organization? It’s a fair question and can be puzzling. We attribute an unengaged workforce or misalignment of values to the culture. Yet, we seem to fall short of building the culture we want. Mario Moussa and Derek Newberry are the authors of The Culture Puzzle: Harnessing the Forces That Drive Your Organization’s Success. They share with Kevin that, too often, we think of culture as an afterthought. We share our vision, build the team, and then create the culture. However, culture happens when you put the people together. Culture is about the stories. Culture is dynamic and fluid and can change overnight (just think back to March 2020). They share the four forces that drive culture: vision, interest, habit, and innovation. They also recognize that anyone can influence culture.
In this episode, Mario and Derek discuss
- Anthropology and organizational culture.
- Misconceptions about culture.
- 4 forces that drive culture.
- Thoughts about culture in a post pandemic world.
