Culture fascinates me. I’ve always had an overwhelming curiosity to understand the culture that is the basis of groups. Culture binds people. Countries have a culture, groups of like-minded people have a culture, almost everything has a culture...even groups of bowlers have a culture. Culture drives groups to behave in specific and often predictable ways. Companies have a culture.
Corporate culture is hard to create and even harder to manage. A leader needs to manage a company’s culture carefully and with intent.
In Japanese business, culture dictates that the senior leader in the room sits furthest from the door in a meeting room.
