The Anatomy of Organizational Culture Change

As most business owners, leaders and managers know, organizational culture is real, though it can be hard to put a finger on exactly what it is, and thus how to engender it in the workplace day-to-day. It has always been my view that culture happens whether we are intentional about it or not, so why not be strategic about the practices that set the conditions for a positive, collaborative and innovative work environment? In past articles, I have exposed the various skills and practices that are paramount to developing a strong and vibrant culture. In this article I will put them all together in a top-level view so you can see the trajectory and method that I use in my work, what I call the anatomy of organizational culture change. I view culture development as both linear and concurrent. The linear piece means that my main concepts are broken out and discussed week after week, one after another. The concurrent piece is that even though I parse the skills out, they all work together, in tandem, like pieces of cloth working together to make a quilt. In the beginning, you need to work on each square of fabric. We begin week after week to sew the concepts and skills together to make a portion of a quilt in real time. When they are put together they make something very useful, a whole that is more than the sum of its parts. When all of the pieces of culture change are working together, they forge an energy that taps into the collective wisdom of the group. The group itself becomes more intelligent because of each person’s increasing commitment to practice the attitudes and skills that make their particular culture highly functional.
