Organizational Culture and Learning Agility

I believe that organizational culture is simply “the way we do things around here.” Every company has a culture – the key for leaders is to understand whether it’s the culture you want. Here are some questions I ask client companies to help them determine if they have a culture of learning agility.

1. How do employees handle disagreements and conflict?
2. Is there a healthy debate prior to decision making on teams?
3. Do your brainstorming efforts lead to transparent discussions and straight talk, or are there hidden agendas?
4. How do you know whether employees relate to and identify with the Mission and Core Values of your company?
5. Is recognition and positive feedback only provided to employees who agree with the leaders’ ideas, or is recognition provided for the brightest idea regardless of the source?
