The X Factor that can Make your Corporate 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.
