Enrich your Culture with Process Theology

Your culture is your "Yellow Submarine". It reflects a natural consensus. Surface that consensus. Is your "Yellow Submarine" going somewhere or is it just a state-of-being. Or both. Define your instrumental mission in a single sentence (Domino's Pizza is an excellent example). Create a narrative of your collective vision quest. Focus on the individual and organization performance of the operational mission (Daily Bread). Celebrate your culture on a regular basis.

On a recent consult visit, I offered, "Well, why don't we get the key people together and talk about what's most important." To the puzzled responses, I added, "It'll likely increase buy-in." Somewhere between John Kotter and Peter Senge, there's reality, and the reality is usually a regression toward the mean. Let it Be follows.
