How to create a “World Changing Business Culture” in 5 Steps

Yes, I know “World Changing” might sound too vast and too complex to be reasonable or realistic. But, you might have heard of the Butterfly-Effect. It explains the idea that a small cause may have a more significant effect on the eco-system than we might anticipate or perceive. So it can be enough to do something little, which can have a more substantial impact on the whole system.

During my career, I worked with and within small and large organizations. So these insights are based on my experiences, observations, and researches of successful actions.

Therefore “World Changing” means to align your business and your people to human nature and their needs for significance and being well of. Your people are your employees, partners, or customers. It is about to create a space where people can be seen and heard to create more joy and meaning in everyday work and consumption of your products and services. This also includes considering pain points of processes and individual pains.

1. Connect your Business with a Purpose or Community

This about investing money or time in an NGO or local community or social organization, which connects to your Business Mission. It can be something small or something bigger than your Business. A local organization or activity, the more relevant for your employees or customers, the easier for your communication. You could also start something on your own. Just, for many reasons, it often makes more sense to build on existing efforts. You don't want to lose focus.

If you don’t know where to start, the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's) for 2030 could guide you. You can find Business-related Information and Ressources on https://sdghub.com/. Aligning with the SDG's directly or indirectly through an organization is probably one of the most productive and efficient ways.

2. Have an Information-System beyond numbers

Having an Information System beyond numbers in your company is pressing on one side to communicate what you’ve envisioned for your company, so you can guide and move your team into the direction you encounter the best. And also to find out what your team understands as their task and contribution. And they can come up with new ideas.

You don’t have necessarily to implement any new technology as long your internal principles are clear. You can start with your existing communication and decide to upgrade to a higher sophisticated system, if necessary, later.

They say “Sharing is Caring”, which sounds simple, but it can be more complicated than expected. If you don’t have a system yet, you start with defining one. If you do already use one, review it, and be honest where it could be improved.

3. Openness for new ways

Life knows just one consistent factor, which is change. In modern times, technology increases the speed of change. How Kevin Kelly, author of the Book “The Inevitable” states, 'we coming from a solid-state and are going to a liquid one.' Yeah, this might be feeling like getting dizzy. But becoming aware of that dynamic makes you see more clearly again and can lead you to be more open about the things you don’t understand (anymore). Like everyone does.

You can’t expect your employees to be open if you haven’t cultivated this. You, as a leader, have to demonstrate this consistently, by being open about your shortcomings and vulnerable pain points. Some people don’t want to have any change. They are happy with their paycheck every month. Depending on your business, this can also threaten your Business Model mid- to longterm. So if you don’t show openness, neither they will. And they always will drop the pen as soon as they can. 

4. Get Valuable Unexpected New Insights

New insights are usually gained externally by customer feedback, researches, and studies. There might be a larger potential to improve your business by gaining new insights internally. And I’m not talking about your KPI’s and Business Intelligence.

Unexpected new internal insights are possible through the reflection of experiences already made as an organization and on an individual level. We might oversee these opportunities because they might be covered by emotions we consider as bad because nobody wants to feel pain. And being emotional is nothing you would think of as professional. But on a deeper level, there are insights about blockages and new ideas.

PAIN + REFLECTION = PROGRESS, an equation by Ray Dalio, who explains the dynamics in his book “Principles.” From my perspective, one of the best books about Principles for Life and Work, especially in our modern Business World. I can’t recommend this book highly enough.

5. Review, Refine and Repeat

Evaluate the space which has been created. There are many different ways to do this. It depends on the size of your organization. It can be done in a Company All-Hands, in a survey or a more sophisticated Tool or Workshop. You need to ensure that people feel safe to express what is on their mind.

In general, things get more complicated; the larger the organization is. This is the nature of cultivating and organizing more substantial groups of people. Just think of your family, it is easier to align with and gather your closest family than with the larger circle.

After you get a better sense of what influences your organization and people, you can decide how to move on the best. 

Working on your Business Culture will make you more aware of Solutions and Improvements for your Business in the first place. If you communicate your corporate activities on social responsibility, there is a fantastic side effect that your customers and partners will sense that you care for the whole. And you don’t need any media budget for that. This is Leadership Marketing.

So this is not about being perfect or religious. Things will go wrong, and you will fail at some point, but you will also learn from and make progress. The potential to gain more trust, become more attractive for talents and clients, make more revenue, and contribute is too promising not be tried. If you never never try, you will never never know.

I hope you’ve found this useful, and I’m curious about your feedback. So I can learn what is relevant to you and if I could support you in that field.

“What You do is Who You Are” (another brilliant book) where Ben Horowitz explains that Business Culture is more a Set of Actions than of Values.

Therefore I would like to encourage you to execute for a Better Business and World. Remember, even a small action can have an impactful ripple effect. So I would like to finish with this quote.
