E108 - The dark side of culture

Subscribe to the podcast here.

‘You don’t know how good you have it until it changes’. This was a CEO talking about his culture after a new Chairman is on the scene. A change at the top can certainly spell doom (or boom!) for culture. There are other aspects at play too: systems and shadow. We go through two recent articles - one on Facebook and how its culture is slipping, and one from the Navy SEALs - a Special Operations Chief is arrested for war crimes.

  • Culture is your operating system for people. Know and set the code.

  • Systems drive behaviour - review yours.

  • Every strength has a shadow - are you aware of your own culture shadow?
