Consider Your Culture

Rosina here.  Happy Monday!  Did you have a great weekend?

I guess I get to do even more social media than I do now, lol.

I got called to be the Social Media Specialist for our ward I\’m in at church.

So now I get to administrate the ward\’s Facebook group and help with the auxiliary groups so they are set up right.

My Sundays just got busier lol.

And I didn\’t get released from being a Family History specialist so I guess I get to do both though I think both might prove to be too much. We\’ll see how things go.

I also found out today that I do indeed have to report for jury duty tomorrow.

So first thing tomorrow I will be heading to the courthouse

We\’ll see what that brings for me. I have much on my calendar this week I may have to reschedule.

I also got word that my friend I take to the school for the blind is feeling better and ready to go back to school starting Thursday, but we\’ll see if jury duty keeps me from doing that too. If I have to serve very long, it will.

It\’s turning out to be a much busier week than I had planned on, lol.

I was reading today about cultures.

So, what really is a culture?

A culture is really a group of people who share a common set of beliefs and values.

There are common cultures in countries. America has a culture. France has a different culture. One is not better than the other, they are just different.

Cities often have a culture. New York has a culture that is different from Chicago that is different from San Francisco.

Companies have cultures too and they show tremendously through their employees and in the way their customers think of them.

Someone from one culture will not necessarily fit into another culture.

A good employee from Microsoft will likely not fit into the culture of Apple, and vice versa, a good Apple employee will likely not fit into the culture at Microsoft.

Not that cultures are set in stone, indeed far from it. And people move between cultures all the time as they find themselves learning and growing and embracing different values.

Do you know that in the \’80s and early \’90s Continental Airlines was considered one of the worst places to work. By 1993 (or so) Continental Airlines was considered one of the best places to work in America.

That happened because the CEO totally changed the culture of the company and brought in people that fit the new culture.  And it showed in the happiness of their employees, their on-time record and the loyalty of their employees and customers as well as other measurements.

So what\’s the lesson in all this?

Cultures are highly valuable. And one is not necessarily better than another.

But even more, what we believe shows through in who we attract to us in everything we do and especially in our business.

If you are not attracting those you wish to serve in your business, look more closely at the culture you are exhibiting in all you do and if it doesn\’t fit who you really are, then change it

If you haven\’t read it, I strongly suggest Start With Why by Simon Sinek.

To your success!
