Simplicity allows us to focus on what needs to be done and this is especially true for workplace culture. Imagine for a moment that we simply defined workplace culture as the sum total of all:
This simple definition goes beyond many other definitions because it takes into account those past employees that may no longer be present, but their experiences still linger along with their emotions and expectations. The passage of time is very much present in the culture of any organization. Employees hear stories of how “things used to be” or how “things never change around here.”
By having a simple definition, we then can move forward to the results of a highly engaged organizational culture. The importance of involved employees also can be rendered down to these three Es of:
To have highly engaged employees does demand a high level of energy. This energy is what creates the engagement and what delivers the execution. For at the end of the day, how much gets done and gets done well is the desired end result.
When forward thinking leadership simplifies the complex, then they as business owners to consultants to individual participants can better understand the essence within any issue. From this essence we can make far easier connections of what we need to know and more importantly what is standing in the way from those connections happening.
