Behavioral change is occurring within the workplace that is far beyond the control of organizational leadership! This transformation of the basic human condition is innate in today’s society and is greatly affecting the “Culture” of every business organization.
For perhaps the first time in history, leadership is not is a position to totally stipulate the overall work arrangement and work processes of their employees. They must work WITH their associates …sharing the goals of the organization and, together, creating a path to their fulfillment.
Likewise, business leaders must thoroughly understand the social atmosphere of their organization. Good or Bad, the existing social culture of an organization is very hard to change. However, through the planned physical manipulation of people, work-tools (including furniture) and the work-space, a highly effective work environment can be realized.
Promoting the strengths of your workforce culture through a planned work environment is a critical element to business success.
