Take time out to examine the business culture, to set and embed vision and values which will drive the business into the future
As the nation’s children return to school this September their teachers are faced with delivering a new curriculum. Designed to provide children with the skills needed for “life in modern Britain” the core subjects of English and Maths are to be beefed up alongside clear changes in the sciences, history and computing.
Regardless of your views on the changes, the idea that the curriculum needed a revamp, a resetting to meet current demands is one which many businesses would do well to emulate. Our technology has changed, the way in which we communicate has changed and as a result the way in which we interact with business has changed. Employees and customers alike are now seeking a more open, collaborative, balanced way of life and the business which resists this trend could be setting itself up for a fall.
Taking time out to examine the business culture, to set and embed vision and values which will drive the business into the future is not just another task to add to the leadership burden; rather it is a key trait which differentiates managers from exceptional leaders and strong future-proof businesses from those which fail to deliver the service which employees and customers demand. When was the last time you reset your business curriculum?
