When you reflect on perceptions around organisational culture, you’ll notice a paradox that’s hard to ignore.

Most senior executives and most employees believe that culture is critical to their organisation’s success.

They recognise culture as a potential source of competitive advantage.

Some even feel that culture is far more important than strategy or operating model.

They know that culture determines what happens today and what transpires in the future.

And, according to many studies (Gallop’s being just one of them), the majority of people surveyed believe that their organisation doesn’t have the right culture to succeed - with more than half being convinced that their organisation’s culture requires a major overhaul!

In summary:

  • everyone seems to recognise the importance of culture
  • the majority of employees believe that their company doesn’t have the right culture to succeed

Based on the above, you’d expect that everyone would be working hard to create a healthier, stronger culture in there organisation.

But no.

This is not what seems to be happening (not on a large scale, anyway).

Why do we experience this paradox?

I think it’s because while culture is an incredibly powerful energy field, it is also one that is largely invisible and intangible.

And - to most people - it is too nebulous and too overwhelming to even talk about it.

Like the proverbial wet soap, culture is too slippery to even grasp it, let alone shape it.

If we want to see more organisations with full-spectrum consciousness, that are both financially stable and that operate in service of humanity and the planet, this needs to change.

This blog aims at generating a conversation that contributes to more organisations (and individuals within them) getting a handle on culture and bringing a clear and powerful intention to shaping culture, one little pocket of the world at a time.

Let me guess: you are here because we met in real life, someone you trust mentioned my name or you’ve seen one of my posts on social media.

Whatever brought you here, I’m thrilled that you’ve come around.

This site is where I share useful resources, information and thoughts about what’s widely considered a somewhat nebulous and complex topic:
the organisational culture - and things related to it.

If you work in an organisation, your culture is probably the most powerful force shaping yours and your organisation’s future. And yet, you are probably
still not clear about how to deal with it in the most effective way.

My mission is to demystify organisational culture, to make it more accessible and less overwhelming in its complexity.

I hope that what you find here will help to do just that!
