While I was spinning away at my soul cycle class, the combination of loud hip hop and motivational words led to honing in on two concepts that can make for a better organizational culture.
- Embrace your authentic yourself
- Every team or department has a unique identity and and value proposition. Healthy organizations enable teams to define themselves, embrace their identity and establish their space within the intra organizational dynamic.
- Set your intent
- Be it a short term project or long term strategy, setting the intent at the onset establishes the essential road map to be followed. The simple act of enabling groups to set their overarching purpose for what ever task they are taking on, sets the tone for purposeful action. Mindful organizations know the significance of this act and the results it yields.
