We are Always Building Culture

By Becky Emet, consultant with Community Wealth Partners

In our last post, our CEO, Amy Celep shared a lesson we’ve learned from clients leading transformational change efforts across the country: Everything in [your organization’s] space must reflect the ethos that drives the organization.”

We know that for organizations and groups working to effect sustainable and transformational social change, the cultures of those groups will greatly impact their ability to achieve their goals and realize their visions. In our last post we asked you how you have intentionally built culture. In this post, I’d like to challenge you to think about the ways your leadership team has built culture unintentionally. What daily messages are we sending to our colleagues that directly or indirectly shape the culture of our organization and partnerships?
