Inspiring Culture: 5 Elements

Set a Common Goal. Mobilize your people around a common goal. Help them feel a part of something genuine, special, and important, and you'll inspire real passion and loyalty.  >>>

Communicate Commitment. Invest in mutual long-term goals by hiring ahead of the game and communicating this commitment to your people.  >>>

Facilitate Personal Growth. Cultivate commitment to personal growth.  Success isn't static – and your culture shouldn't be either. Pay attention to what your best people are achieving, and build an infrastructure that rewards mastery. The best way to keep the most talented people is to allow their jobs to change with them. Sometimes, reducing their responsibilities will give them the space to tackle new opportunities and to expand – and your business will expand too.

Encourage people to take risk. Do your best to make sure that people aren't afraid of the possibility of failure, do a lot of experiments and learn from failures.  >>>

Get Involved. Even if you can't go on sales calls, or drop by meetings, use e-mail or the Internet to stay in touch with people at all levels of the organization and especially with those in faraway locations whom you don't see as often as you'd like. Think of this as a way of immersing yourself in real information, with real people, that will allow you to react in real time.  >>>
