Transform Your Business
FIRMS that drive forward with a positive, compelling and visionary agenda will thrive in the future. And their spirits will soar. Are you brave enough to try cultural transformation?
It requires openness, honesty and trust, and can only be developed by throwing out the traditional culture of blame, and investing time in building a positive, transformed environment. Why not start it now?
Cultural transformation means different things to different people and what works in one company may not in another. It is important to set your own transformational agenda and to focus on the issues and needs in your environment.
A good starting point is to revive, review and reinstate your organizational objectives. Ensure they become a set of deeply held beliefs that guide you towards meeting your aims while trusting and respecting each other.
So, this month, involve everyone in deciding a code of ethics and values for the future. This will help secure ownership and commitment across the whole team. Be consistent. Because if, as their leader, you once stray from these values, you risk losing your followers.
(Extract from The Naked Leader)
You need to know in a business just what the code of ethics is. Otherwise there is no reference, or starting point, or even basis to move forward.
Knowing where you are and where you want to be as a company is vital if staff are going to thrive.
Some companies blunder from one thing to the next without any kind of thought behind what their strategy is.
Without a clear strategy and company ethics the business is sure to fail.
Having a task and knowing what is expected of you is also so important.
