Caution: be careful not to become too organizational culture-centric

Many organizations are constantly seeking to sustain culture, align people with culture, fit people within a defined culture, and maintain rigid practices and procedures to cement the culture.

Considering present and future changes in our workplaces – demographics, technology, privacy (and many other) laws, working conditions, global expansion, mergers & acquisitions, the competitive talent landscape, and many other internal and external factors, organizational cultures will require more fluidity. 

Organizational culture remains important for defining the “personality” of your organization (Fast Company, 2019), however the ‘cementing’ of culture could hinder growth and inadvertently lead to exclusion, if not fluid.  Perhaps the best part of your culture is yet to come! #holdthecement
