What is the X Factor That Can Make your Culture Great? Quiddity

The X factor that will really differentiate your culture is unique for each company. Some X factors that are often used include transparency, a culture of trust, and put people first. They are all to create an environment where people and organizations grow and develop together. If you already have an X factor but it still fails to be really successful, then what is the secret of X factor that can make your culture great?
According to Schorin G. and Wilberding M. in “The X Factor of Great Corporate Cultures”, Harvard Business Review January 21, 2020, the true X factor is quiddity. They say that if culture is "the way we do things around here," quiddity is "The way we do things the way we do."
Quiddity can ensure that culture remains inherent and in harmony, articulating, agreeing, and communicating.
