This coming week, I will have the privilege of teaching a group of team members at my company on how to gain confidence in preserving our company’s culture.
Every day everywhere, some employees say things and do things that are counter-productive to their organization’s culture. In my experience, I’ve seen observing team members respond three ways to those moments when they understand the company’s culture is at risk:
- Do nothing.
- Join in.
- Specifically, intentionally do 3 things to preserve the culture.
I’ll share these 3 action steps here on Go, Leader, Grow! after the meeting. Anyone in any organizational culture can do this. Stay tuned.
Here’s a great post by Travis Bradberry:
We’re always chasing something—be it a promotion, a new car, or a significant other. This leads to the belief that, “When (blank) happens, I’ll finally be happy.”
While these major events do make us happy at first, research shows this happiness doesn’t last. A study from Northwestern University measured the happiness levels of regular people against those who had won large lottery prizes the year prior. The researchers were surprised to discover that the happiness ratings of both groups were practically identical.
The mistaken notion that major life events dictate your happiness and sadness is so prevalent that psychologists have a name for it: impact bias. The reality is, event-based happiness is fleeting.
