In this episode, Jesse and Marty answer an important question from a listener. “I’ve heard what thought leaders like Jim Collins and Patrick Lencioni have to say,” Steve asks, “but it just seems like theory when I think about how to apply it to our team. What practical things can we do today to develop our culture?”
Whether you own a small business like Steve, lead of a department within a large organization, or even lead a family or group of volunteers, it comes down to a small team of people who are closest to you. The ball is in your court to develop a culture intentionally rather than let it emerge haphazardly. Jesse and Marty discuss four practical actions that you can take to build an effective culture for your team:
- Clarify what your top values are.
- Tell a story that illustrates a value.
- Look for opportunities to share feedback that reinforces a value.
- Match actions to words.
