Culture is king (or queen)

It would be unfair to share my latest homework for Seth Godin’s Leadership Workshop on Udemy. Instead I’ll share my notes from his lecture.

The culture of the organisation you build changes everything.

Culture defeats strategy.

Culture defeats tactics.

Culture is at the heart of whether you are going to get to where you want to or not.

Too many leaders fall into a trap – they become so focused on survival, on getting the job done and moving forward that they sacrifice culture.

We get the culture we deserve.

What corners are you happy to cut? What kind of culture do you want?

Establishing the culture should drive everything that you do going forward.

Don’t do things in the way they have always been done.

Do them in the way that will get you where you want to go.
