More and more, organizational experts, including the well respected McKinsey & Company, are confirming what I’ve believed for years: organizational cultural change is inseparable from individual change. The two must work hand-in-hand. Why? Because organizations don’t change unless people’s mindsets and behavior change.
Manager or leaders, shift the way you think, speak and behave. Soon, you’ll begin to notice changes in how others are thinking, talking and behaving. And before you know it, you’ll see real shifts in the broader culture.
If your goal is to transform the culture of your team or business, first, look no further than your own behavior. Begin leadership and cultural transformation by making important shifts in what you do, day-to-day, and how you do it. Change the way you operate. Choose mindsets and behaviors that align with the new direction you want the business to take.
