Fail to fail.

Chapter 16: The Culture Plan

15 mins

The Culture Plan is an organisational asset that demonstrates, at a glance, how your company honours its values in how it deals with employees at each stage of the employee lifecycle.

It's only fair that if employees are expected to perform at their best and uphold the company's values, the business should also act by those values when interacting with them. It's mutual respect and accountability, like a dance where both partners lead gracefully.

The Culture Plan operationalises your Culture System (your espoused purpose, values and behaviours), enabling leaders to honour values with the subsequent structures, processes and incentives that drive high performance.

What to expect in this episode:
(04:11): You only have one chance to make a first impression.
(07:26): Make your culture plan measurable.
(11:44): how to make your culture plan accountable.
