Does your culture work? Are your employees fully engaged? Does everyone come to work excited, energised and bringing their 'A' game? Do you have customers or fiercely loyal fans that talk about you all the time?
Wherever two or more people come together for a common purpose a shared culture will arise. It doesn't matter whether you spend time explicitly defining your culture or whether you allow it to develop organically, every organisation has a culture that impacts everything in the organisation.
Defining your a strong clear culture can transform your organisation into a company with cult-like status, where people are desparate to work with you and customers become loyal fans that talk about you all the time.
How cult-like is your business?
Answer the following questions by deciding how much each statement applies to your organisation. Be sure to evaluate the statements honestly and without over thinking your answers. (For a fuller picture, get other members of your team to complete the questionnaire too.)
You will be scored against four key areas of culture?
The first step in the ONE framework is to define your ONE purpose, the reason your organisation exists. What’s the cause that you’re fighting for?
The second step is to get the right people on the bus that are not only capable but have the right character. Who are the players?
The third step is to watch your language and make your communications consistent with your values. Select the words very carefully.
The final step of the ONE framework is to design the ways of working that reinforce the behaviours you want. How will people behave?
