You can’t put your finger on exactly why your organization isn’t leveraging every opportunity, though there are signs all around you.
Those signs might include: missed deadlines more often than you’d like; inconsistent quality; periodic morale issues; at times, upset customers. Teams aren’t supporting and cooperating, they’re competing against one another. It seems that sometimes employees just go through the motions.
Every day these issues are present, they cost you money. They also dampen the liveliness of your workforce.
These issues not only inhibit your organization’s performance today, but they erode its ability to respond to market opportunities in the future.
Perhaps you have tried to reinvigorate the organization with team building, process improvements, or a renewed focus on goals and accountability.
The reality is that these actions usually don’t make things better, because the underlying relationship you have with employees doesn’t improve.

What is needed is a behavioral approach to culture creation. In the best work environments, good citizenship is as important as meeting deadlines and exceeding quotas. Clear performance standards must be reinforced through accountability for those standards. By stating your organizational values in observable, tangible, and measurable terms, you create values standards as clear as performance standards.
