“Work culture” & its two components

Culture in any work environment is a function of two essential components:

1) Values & 2) Behavior

A value system is nurtured by the leadership.If the value system encourages a long term infinite mindset it has a wonderful effect and makes people feel safe and encouraged.The vice versa is true as well

The value system inculcated and nurtured has a direct impact on behavior of employees.If the value system is strong it leads to trusting teams where the behavior is that of co-operation and collaboration.If the value system is weak and short term oriented , people mistrust each other , hide information and micromanagement dominates.

Thus culture has a huge role to play in getting best out of employees
