Have you ever been with, or in contact with, an organization where the feeling was off, but you couldn’t explain why? Chances are that what you felt was an insecure, and not fully grounded, value culture.
One of the most impactful things you can do for your organization, leaders, and employees, is to create a strong, alive, and crystal-clear value culture where there is no room for misunderstandings or personal interpretations - a value culture where everyone moves toward a common goal together.
Most organizations can work well without a strong value culture when times are good, but when hard times come and the organization is put to a test, you will struggle without a strong grounded value culture. It is when people are stressed and under a lot of pressure that the value culture will be the organization’s backbone, compass, and common ground. The value culture will guide you to stay on track and it enables an environment where everyone looks to support and help each other rather than just looking out for themselves.
Every organization has its value culture, but it’s not always clearly described what it is or how it should be utilized in the everyday work. A value culture cannot come to life and be truly beneficial until it is dressed in words supporting your strategy, goals, and brand, as well as described in a way that everyone in the organization understands. In an organization with a clear value culture, it becomes easy to take decisions, every employee knows how to act when a customer isn’t happy, or in disagreement with a co-worker, and the results will soon be visible on the bottom line also.
