The best leaders focus, almost exclusively, on culture.
Culture is the way your business behaves. Especially when no one is looking.
Culture is the attitude with which your team comes to work, it is the generosity of spirit they do or don’t show to their coworkers; it is, as a whole, is the way you as a group of people think, act and interact.
It’s not what you say. It’s what you do.
And this matters, a great deal, because culture is how, as a leader, you actually get things done.
If you have a positive, can-do culture that is generous, permissive and creative then your vision for your business – your ‘Shining City On A Hill’ – is so much more likely to be realised.
Without it, your ideas – no matter how ‘good’ – will remain just that; ideas.
Because, as the song says, in the end, it ain’t what you do, it’s the way that you do it.
That’s what get results.
