Culture: the ideas, customs, and social behaviour of a particular people or society
How would you describe your school or organisation’s culture?
Positive, vibrant and exciting?
Demoralised, weary and fearful?
Or somewhere in between?
Leaders are in the process of continuous change, taking people on a journey. As the leader you may have an inspiring strategic plan, clearly articulated mission and vision statements, and effective systems and processes in place, but unless the culture is assessed and addressed, these grand plans will come to nothing, by “breakfast”.
Your culture is the most powerful factor in change, it determines:
- speed of change
- receptivity for change
- health of your people
- impact of your vision and mission
- effectiveness and influence in the long term
What’s floating your boat?
