What is organizational culture?
Organizational culture refers to a company's mission, objectives, expectations and values that guide its employees. Businesses with an organizational culture tend to be more successful than less structured companies because they have systems in place that promote employee performance, productivity and engagement. Having a strong company culture motivates everyone to do their best work.
What is Leadership?
Being a great leader is all about having a genuine willingness and a true commitment to lead others to achieve a common vision and goals through positive influence. No leader can ever achieve anything great or long-lasting all alone. “Leadership is Influence, nothing more, nothing less.” – John C. Maxwell”
Building High-Performing Teams
You might be the best at what you do. The thing is, that won’t matter in the long run if you don’t know how to build a great team around you.
Your startup could be just what your community needs, but if your team members can't work well together, it’ll flop. You could be thrilled to get promoted to team leader at work, but if you can’t build trust with the people you manage, you won’t achieve your team goals.
That old saying, “Teamwork makes the dream work,” is always going to be true. A group of people in sync can build something great from the ground up. Together, you can take advantage of each other’s strengths to do what you never could alone.
Pulling people together might seem easy, but it takes skill to create a truly successful team. If you want to know how to build a team, recognize that every great collaboration starts with a talented, motivated leader.
The Power of Training and Development
The famous Richard Branson quote that he penned in 2014 goes “Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough, so they don't want to”. The statement from the founder of Virgin Atlantic carries a lot of meaning, and it should undoubtedly be the driving force of every entrepreneur.
