Team culture

According to John Cutler, company culture is...
➡ What you say, and how often you say it ➡ What, when, and how you celebrate ➡ The losses and missteps you acknowledge, and how you respond ➡ How you behave when the chips are down ➡ What you fight for at all costs ➡ The corners you cut ➡ Who you hire, promote, and compensate, and who you fire ➡ Who you “smoke out” until they leave the organization ➡ The worst behavior you accept and the best behavior you reject ➡ The voices you amplify, and the voices you suppress ➡ When you encourage conformity, and when you promote diversity ➡ How you handle disagreements and differences in opinion ➡ How and where you spend your time and money ➡ What gets discussed at the water cooler ➡ What gets discussed out in the open, and behind closed doors ➡ The contradictions you allow and the contradictions you stamp out ➡ The exceptions you make and the things that never budge ➡ Who sits together and how you arrange your office ➡ Who gets access to the best tools, technology, and infrastructure ➡ What you say about your customers during challenging situations
