Conscious Leaders Care about Culture

Jim Collins said “culture is strategy.” How true. Company culture is about how things are done. It is about the values that inform decisions and behaviors. It is about how connected everyone is to the purpose of the business. The question is not does a particular business have a culture (every organization has one). The question is, what kind of culture do they have?

Generally speaking, the more vibrant and alive the culture, the more profitable and stable is the business. In a great corporate culture, people actually look forward to coming to work. They do whatever is required to connect with and serve the customer.

What kind of culture do you work in? How could you bring more life to the culture of your team?

Conscious Culture is one of the four tenants of Conscious Capitalism, a growing global movement. To learn more about it, check out the book Conscious Capitalism, With a New Preface by the Authors: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business
