Over the last 12 months I’ve had the opportunity to respond to a number of RFP’s – requests for proposal. These requests often come from large companies or government agencies that want a service and want the best solution at the best price.
In my case, these organizations were interested in my services – culture consulting – so they invited my response.
In each of the RFP’s I was invited to, these organizations specified that they were seeking a training program to address their culture issues. The problem? A bent or broken culture isn’t going to be fixed by a training program.
By definition, a training program builds awareness and skills that leaders and team members can use on the job. Training is a great way to increase players’ awareness and skills in organizing their work, communicating effectively, project management, leading their project team, completing reports, welding a seam, packaging product, and tasks like these.
A bent or broken culture, unfortunately, is not an awareness or skills problem. It’s a clarity and accountability problem!
In today’s three-minute episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I specify how to address work culture challenges with clarity (of servant purpose and values) and accountability (for purpose, values, and results).
My Culture Leadership Charge series features short (two-to-three-minute) videos that describe proven culture leadership and servant leadership practices that boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams, departments, regions, and even your entire company.
Each episode’s “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization – not just leaders – to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated respectfully at all times.
