In many ways, this global pandemic is laying bare what really matters to different businesses and nations, and in the process, revealing a lot about their character. It’s also reminding us of the many people, places and cultures that make this world so wonderfully diverse.
How would you describe the culture in your organisation? How would you describe it within your team? This is a really great time to assess your culture, analyse the dynamics between co-workers and notice how they communicate or collaborate with each other.
- Do they respect one another’s ideas and opinions?
- Do they relate on an interpersonal level?
- Do they function cohesively as a team?
- Do you promote a free exchange of dialogue and unique perspectives?
The way we communicate in this virtual environment is going to be a testament to the culture of your organisation. And the thing is, often what held our culture together before isn’t possible anymore. What traditions and rituals do you have in the office that have moved over to this virtual world?
Find out what your team think of your culture. Ask everyone to write three words to describe the culture on a piece of paper and when you’re all on a video call, everyone has to put it up to the screen at the same time.
Whatever the culture, whatever the crisis, we can still be in control of how we approach it. Use this as an opportunity to review and reset your culture. And reach out to the team at No More Ifs Or Buts if you’re interested in understanding and utilising your culture more.
