Like fresh water, encouragement is a daily drink for our souls that brings life to our hearts through vision and hope. Unfortunately for too many of us, we can go days without receiving it from those around us regardless of their role in our life. However each of us can change that. Encouragement can come in the spoken or written word and actions that affirm one’s journey, gifts or character. What it takes is a vision to look around and see others beyond yourself. But, to do so takes intent and purpose. Don’t know where to start? I would love to help. Let’s connect and explore it together. Who knows, you just might get encouraged along the way!
How is your organization’s culture impacting your efforts? Do you have cultural goals you are wanting to achieve? How do you measure cultural success? How many of your staff are enjoying their work or looking to leave because of your organizational culture? How is your bottom line, whether financial or otherwise, affected by your organizational environment?
These and other questions are increasingly more relevant in today’s world of organizational proliferation. Establishing, sustaining and maintaining a climate for organizational growth and impact, both internally and externally, is a significant context for exploring and answering these and other relevant questions that truly influence organizational success. To not only capture the “pulse” of your current culture, but to consistently work on one’s cultural environment helps to impact every level of organizational life — individual, team and collectively as an entity.
A common theme emerges both from practical experience and intentional cultural philosophy — Culture happens — it will be defined by defaulting circumstance or by specific vision. Who is defining yours?
All organizations have a culture that defines their internal environment and impacts every aspect of life within — decision-making, relationships, staff motivations, job performance and yes, the bottom line. These values and beliefs, ultimately leading to action strategies, are either intentionally created, strengthened and sustained, or they will be arise by default. More organizations are realizing the importance of being pro-active in their efforts to identify, establish and promote the kind of organizational life they want for their staff and clients. Red Beryl Consulting is here to help in this process and provide resources for the success of all involved.
