Fostering a healthy culture on your team goes beyond promoting tolerance. We need management skills that are flexible enough to harness the beauty of tolerance in the workplace while avoiding its dangers.
In our increasingly global and inter-culturally complex workplaces, it is clear that there are complex cultural elements that any coach must recognize, understand, and address!
Establish your third cultural space early in the coaching relationship, making sure that it reflects something of those you coach as well as something of yourself.
A thriving Organizational Culture must be cultivated. Like a gardener who ties a seedling to a pole, you can encourage the growth of your OC in the right direction.
Culture is not driven by a list of values and their definitions. Behavior drives culture. You must take your organization on a journey to discover together which behaviors you would like to pursue as the embodiment of your organization's values.
Alignment within your team or organisation requires concern for your personnel (Relational Excellence). But what do you do when the improvement of your processes and systems (Transactional Excellence) is just as critical to your organization?
To thrive in today’s global world, it is necessary to strive toward both Relational Excellence and Transactional Excellence. However, this often sets a culture-shifting pendulum in motion.
The art of creating an Organizational Culture that resonates with a global workforce is becoming crucial. This is why we ask organizations several critical questions related to Organizational Culture: What is the current DNA of your organization? Can you put your finger on it? Is your DNA supportive of your strategy for the global market?
The 1940 book Anna and the King relates the story of a Siamese king and a widowed British schoolteacher. On a quest to help Siam transcend global cultural and educational gaps among nations, this unlikely pair of strong-willed individuals bridge chasms of their own to forge a partnership as they embark upon a journey towards inter-cultural intelligence.
If your DNA is not yet global, then how do you make it global? What questions should you be asking of yourselves in order to begin a successful journey? We believe that Inter-Cultural Intelligence is crucial to the process of transforming international DNA into global DNA.
