We often liken the building of company culture to a terraforming process (a process that transforms a hostile environment – be it a planet or a workplace – into one that supports growth.) Like terraforming, growing a company culture can be an investment in terms of time as well as money, but the culture of your company can have a major impact on your success, your client base, and your ability to attract and retain the most talented people.
This week, we get into some of the details of what defines company culture, why it’s so important, and how you can start recognizing what’s at play in the culture of your organization.
We talk about:
- What company culture is
- The difference between personal values and culture
