Most Common Culture Problems

Company values must be executed in order to establish a strong company culture.

Not only do CEOs have difficulty in defining their company culture and determining the values needed to make this culture happen, the biggest challenge of course is to see all of their staff execute these values throughout the day, every day. This is where road blocks arise.

Road Blocks

In times of great uncertainty and rapid change, the greatest human constraint is FEAR of:

  • Failure
  • The unknown
  • Loss of resources (money, time, access)

At a time when we need to be the most creative, adaptable, and agile, our human conditioning raises the spectre of significant perceived risk involved with every step of the creative process and of changing what we do. If the fear that normally arises is not addressed, paralysis and seemingly plausible excuses for not boldly moving forward can create major road blocks to your company’s success.

Imagine what your company could achieve if you had a culture that is free of fear?
