What is Culture?
“Culture is where the humans gather. An independent organism that formed with shared beliefs around the rules of survival and emotional prosperity. A culture exists to protect itself, its antennae are working constantly, its credibility detector is infallible, its perceptions are alarmingly accurate and its memory is elephantine. You can’t bribe, bluff or bully a culture into sustainably believing or doing anything. You can’t tell it what to believe or stop it from existing. But you can take comfort from knowing that a culture is the utmost rational organism – an objective, agnostic and open belief system - who wants to believe and be inspired."
Three critical cultures for companies to serve:
Your Manager Culture: The emotional commitment of your manager culture is worth more than its financial, intellectual and physical commitment combined. It translates to your managers taking on company success like a personal crusade.
Your Employee Culture: A successful strategy isn’t planned well; it is implemented well. That starts with achieving ferocious support from your employee culture to protect the performance goal, course-correct it and evangelize it with its own good name to others.
Your Customer Culture: A brand transfers sustainability of a company to its customers, who sell for it and protect it. It requires faith from both your employee culture, that has to represent company intentions, and your customer culture, that has to ignore other companies’ seductions and broken promises of the past.
‘Branded' is a tribute, not a verb. A brand promise is a company saying, ‘You will know us by our intention.’ You are only a brand if – and when – these groups say you are as a result of living up to your intentions.”
