Your Business Culture Shapes Your Company's Leadership

Bookmark and Share
I hear a lot about business culture, but does it really affect your business? According to Heidrick & Struggles's Thomas Kell and Gregory T. Carrott, culture does affect the leadership in your company: "Corporate cultures -- and not just the strong ones -- influence employees' leadership styles more than any other aspect of their jobs, according to our recent analysis of thousands of executive assessments for more than 100 corporations." Say you were born in America but live and work in South America. According to Kell and Carrott, you're more likely to exhibit leadership styles of South American leaders than you would from your birth country. If you're just starting your business, it's important to cultivate the business culture early. If you don't, it will be a monumental task to change that business culture once you grow larger as people will already adopt the culture set in place. (Culture clashes is the main reason why most mergers don't work.)
