Creating a Culture of Results

Every business has a culture of some kind. But you can’t change your culture any more than you can change your brand by just talking about it, or even teaching it. You have to make systemic changes in your organization that transform the way people think and behave.

People are deeply influenced by their work environment. Weaker people can become highly productive and stronger people can lose their edge, depending on your company culture.

The magic really begins to happen when the right people come together with remarkable business systems to create a culture of results through discipline, enthusiasm and high performance.

It is the primary concern, and responsibility, of every business owner, manager or executive to create a culture of results inside their company. This is created and maintained through disciplined adherence by every employee to ensure profitability and continuance of the company’s operation.

((Efficient People + Motivation) * Accountability) = Effective Team Results

Where does it start?

HIRE THE RIGHT BEST PEOPLE

Let me repeat from author Jim Collins,

Workplace Conflicts in a Crisis

All along I had a strong feeling that with these lockdowns, the rate of domestic violence and crimes would go up. To my surprise, I recently found that this wave of interrelation conflicts didn’t just strike homes but also the business world.

Visiting two of my clients with whom we had established harmonized teams before lockdown, I noticed a change in behavior and performance as some employees seemed to be stressed by this pandemic situation.

On top of that, working remotely demands a higher level of communication. In a normal face to face meeting without masks, one might easily notice when a point is not well understood and address the issue with minimum damage. However, in a remote working situation, one idea that is poorly communicated through email or any other platform might cause latent …

The World Has Gone Broke on Certainty

A Google search for the word “uncertainty” in 2017 gave 0.6 million results. For the first ten months of 2018, the same search gave 2.5 million results. On May 11, 2020, I did the same search and had 188 million results. On July 25, I had 209 million.

Although uncertainty has been rising over the years, it has worsened with the Covid-19 pandemic. The changes we are experiencing are not a walk in the park for business owners, governments and scientists.

For a business to survive, an entrepreneur needs personal clarity, tools for observation and agile actions. This is the approach that will allow him to regain a healthy mindset and thereby certainty.

The cost of uncertainty is too high a risk to bear. Let’s avoid it. We must do everything to ensure that our businesses are not swept away by this dwindling spiral of uncertainty due to a lack of understanding or even action.

I am convinced that the way forward for entrepreneurs should include:
