I also enjoyed reading Lisa Hanenberg's White Paper from 2009 on How Leaders Can Optimize Organizational Culture. You can download it here. Lisa's writing is always terrific and she has a number of great resources for team leaders including several of her books published by ASTD Press
As team leaders given our daily interactions with the front line, we play a key role in shaping the organizational culture through our practices, processes and fostering or challenging of beliefs. The values our teams develop can also align in support of the organizational culture.
Questions to consider:
If you were to describe the culture of your team in six words, what would those be?
What are the activities, habits and practices that shape your team culture?
How does your team culture align with the organizational culture? Where is it aligned? Where are there gaps?
