Jack Litewka, Author, THE SOPHISTICATED MANAGER:  Essential Leadership Lessons for Developing High-Performance Team… and Avoiding Critical Mistakes

A CEO creates the Corporate Culture.  This activity deserves and requires careful thought and communication. If this activity is considered a “nice-to-have”, then the resulting culture is random and becomes “cultural transmission by osmosis” – which is not the most effective way to form a great culture that is tightly aligned to a company’s vision, mission, goals, and values.

Creating a Great Corporate Culture requires that dozens of puzzle pieces fit together. Following are three key pieces to the puzzle that need a CEO’s focused and ongoing attention… because the CEO really is the Cultural Excellence Officer.

In 1944, the Office of Strategic Services—forerunner to the C.I.A.— wrote a field manual for agents looking to sabotage organizations in the name of American national security. The manual included a striking strategy: complication. The agency directed saboteurs to “insist on doing everything through channels. Never permit shortcuts to be taken in order to expedite decisions. Multiply the procedures and clearances…see that three people have to approve everything where one would do.”

As a leader, you set the tone for the team, department and organization. Under stress you may appear and act differently than you intend. This impacts you and your team significantly. The “5 Steps to Reducing Stress” can help.

I received a call from a very stressed-out young lady. She had just started a new job and was feeling more than a little overwhelmed. She asked me if I would help. She was a new supervisor, eager to succeed, and she knew that as a new leader, she might fall victim to the common mistakes new leaders make. She did not. What she did face, however, was stress – stress in the staff, stress in her own supervisor and of course, stress in herself.

Headlines today are filled with cell phone videos of bad behavior, verbal attacks in the twitter-verse, and disturbing incidents of cyberbullying. In our everyday lives, disgruntled customers or employees tarnish reputations of local businesses or past employers and jobs are lost or never offered because of inappropriate social media sharing.  Business owners who want to have better control of their reputation online should follow these three key pieces of advice:

Countless apps now make our lives more convenient and fun, but – let’s be honest – they haven’t really improved the more important elements of our lives, like how we bank, stay healthy, insure our families, educate our children.

But this is changing. Digital technologies – including AI, algorithms, bots, smart devices and big data – are beginning to impact not only things that are fun, but also work that matters. This includes game-changing productivity improvements that compress weeks-long processes into a blink, customize services that morph as we do, lead to more accurate diagnoses and predictions – the list goes on.
