Here are some telltale signs that your company culture is not as healthy as it could be: Everyone plays the blame game. No one offers new ideas. Information is hoarded, not shared. Turnover is high, and strategic partners aren’t interested in working with you.
According to Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey, co-authors of The Entrepreneurial Culture: 23 Ways to Engage and Empower Your People and co-owners of Barefoot Wine, there’s a way out of this kind of cultural slump. It involves nurturing an entrepreneurial culture in your organization–one in which everyone feels they have a stake in the company’s success and knows they will be rewarded and recognized for their contributions.
In this episode of CW Radio, Houlihan and Harvey share some of their own experiences with building an entrepreneurial culture, and give tips on how to create one in your own organization.
