Establishing Cultural Intelligence in Organizations
Marcel Wiedenbrugge, Consultant, Netherlands, Member
It all depends on the organizational culture and how an organization communicates this among its employees.
Keep it stupid simple, choose the right people (cultural fit) for your organization. And before they start to work, give them a training in company goals, company structure, communication, collaboration and explain what your global company values truly mean in a cross-functional and cross-cultural manner.
A lot of companies simply don´t work this way, they just focus on getting the job done.
 

 
Culture and Climate, Strengths and Weaknesses
Patrick Kinane, Management Consultant, United States, Member
I will agree with most of the article but an organization is composed of more than culture. Organizational culture is how things are done, representing reality. Climate is what people think of the way things are operated representing collective conscience. And control which are the rules and policies representing the way things should be done, the ideal. When all are aligned we have synergy and a well run organization.
My last and final point in the 6 steps states to examine the strengths and weaknesses and then concentrate on the weaknesses. This is a fallacy that many organizations have fallen into. They concentrate on the weaknesses believing the strengths will take care of themselves and what happens is that the strengths turn into weaknesses. You never get out of the spiral of reactionary management and progress to proactive management.
