Four Benefits of an Inspired Workplace Culture

by | Sep 7, 2021 | Business & Marketplace, Finances & Career

Our people were always important in our business but it was not until 1989 that I got intentional about it.

For years, I had focused on:

• Strategies
• Wing-dinger, innovative service offerings (I was “Mr. Idea Man.”)
• And having efficient, smooth-running operations through rules, policies and bureaucratic procedures.

You see, I was going after predictability and performance (results); I was focused on strategy.

In 1987, I got intentional about focusing on our people, over and above any policy, system or strategy. I was beginning to learn what management guru Peter Drucker already knew.

“Culture eats strategy for breakfast.”
–Peter Drucker

I began to understand that if I had a culture focused on our people, they helped me pursue and achieve the financial results I was looking for.

I also began to see each individual as not just an employee but as a creation of Christ.

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Eph. 2:10, NIV).

I learned when I began to have our people participate in decisions, created a family atmosphere and helped develop them, they gave back in ways I did not anticipate. They responded with –

– Loyalty
– Mutual trust
– Teamwork
– Commitment

Every leader can appropriately focus on culture if they understand the following four benefits of an inspired organizational culture.

An inspired organizational culture:

Attracts high-performing people (and keeps them)

A strong, positive culture can be your best form of marketing. Top performers gravitate to organizations where they can contribute and feel appreciated. A strong culture broadcasts a message of opportunity to best-in-field people.

Creates a united team

An inspired workplace culture draws your people together in pursuit of common goals and outcomes. This creates a cohesiveness and unity that enables your team to effectively respond to difficulties and capitalize on new opportunities.
