Start with authenticity.
Create a cultural safety zone that is direct, but non-judgmental. Look the elephant square in the eyes and make space for tough conversations and deep listening. You need to hear it all, especially what’s not being said.
Can you give a name to ‘what’s holding us back?’ Because there’s magic in that breakthrough. When you uncover the tangled root of cultural concern, you open new possibility.
Evolve in alignment.
Let nature be your role model. The world around us is always changing, guided by an innate intelligence, drawn towards balance. So too, culture evolves; trust the process and allow the inner brilliance to emerge.
Because when evolution is expected, people are poised to respond – and keep moving. ‘Adapting to change’ can be built into organizational design; the design can be adapted into the culture.
Integrate with awareness.
Let a new cultural consciousness lead the way. As you shift perceptions, you will ignite performance.
Transformation takes time, tenacity and trust. You’ll know you are on the right path as teams become energized around a shared vision, decreasing stress and inspiring learning.
In business, culture is the primary source of untapped potential and people are hungry for change. When we start to see human beings – not human capital – we can unlock the energy of invention, fuel creativity and drive results. Together, we can build brilliant cultures.
And if we can change the culture of business, we can change the world.
