Culture is fascinating to me in so many ways and I feel passionate about unpacking and repacking the writing of authentic ones.
I am struck by the idea, beyond our obvious country crisis, it is easy to predict that businesses and families are and will continue to be challenged to examine their cultures. Attempting to keep culture simple–I define it as “The Story” of your business, family, or personal life. A story rooted in clearly defined and shared values, decisions that are filtered through those values, demonstrating you live and speak in integrity to those values and there is alignment from member behaviors to internal/external communications to brand messaging. Of course, nothing at the moment is this “simple”.
Through Narrative coaching, options exist to embrace exactly what story you are telling and what story do you want to be living. A coaching engagement values you as the expert of your story, an alternative to well-meaning consultants that are sharing their expertise. It is good to have choices when considering how you might approach, what I believe is, a meaningful culture opportunity.
