Cube47 – Culture Game : How to make or succeed in one

A special thanks goes to Roshun who recommended this cube, when you find a great clip, send it in using the forum on every StartingCube.com page.

 

Every group has a unique culture that defines the rules of the game needed to meet your goals, or at least maximize the options.

Sometimes these written or unwritten rules are developed intentionally, other times they are not. In Built To Last, Jim Collins has a whole chapter on the types of cultures common among large industry leading organizations.

 

This cube can be viewed from at least two perspectives:

  1. employee
  2. system designer or leader

We want to urge you to listen to it from your natural role and then later listen trying to think from the perspective of the opposite role.

 

When you have a great ah ha moment, share it below in the comments, or comment on what others have shared.

  1. I work in a field where my performance is based on customer feedback. their perception as measured in a survey it basically all that matters. So, i use this to think about building a cult-like culture of doing what it takes to get that all mighty customer feed back. How the Nordies bragged about their customer service feats.
