Designing an Organization's Culture in Six Parts: The Behaviors Episode
School is In! Join Great Mondays founder, Josh Levine, and brand strategist/workshop facilitator Rachel Davis, for six sun-kissed episodes on youtube about how to collaborate in the Miroverse. What’s the Miroverse? It’s where creators can upload their very own Miro templates. So we did! Each week Rachel and Josh will introduce you to one of the six components of a great company culture. In order to bring your ideas to life, these episodes are interactive (and fun!). Get on board—the Miro board, that is. Josh and Rachel will show you why designing a culture that employees love is so important and how you can collaborate more effectively.
Before watching this video: we recommend sending the youtube link to a few others on your team. Start collaborating as you watch the video together and then compare your notes. Get the bees buzzing. If you want a reliable reference buy Josh's book Great Mondays: How to Design a Company Culture Employees Love. And if you want more help, hire us! We love working with ambitious, creative companies in every industry.
Let's tune in to Episode 3. In this episode we discuss Behaviors, the culturally aligned actions of a work culture.
Josh and Rachel Davis kick off their third summer school class together which covers the third component of great company culture: behaviors.
Rachel describes the Miroverse and why it's the ultimate collaboration tool for a virtual environment (ahem: distributed work teams).
Josh lays down the definition of behaviors, those choices made by employees that are guided by what you learned in the first two classes. You guessed it: purpose & values.
Follow Josh and Rachel as they walk you through the Great Mondays Behaviors Template and discuss when in a company's evolution is the best time to do the exercises presented on the board.
Guided Activity. Follow along as Josh introduces you to a little management consulting classic. Play around with inventing new behaviors, learn how to ditch the bad habits, and adjust your viewpoint to look at ideas with a fresh pair of eyes. Essentially, find your inner magician!
Brainstorm alone or with someone on your team, take notes, and consider starting a slack channel for new behavioral insights. The strategy is the mindset shift. Just by bringing awareness to new ways of behaving, change occurs.
Class bell. How do you feel now that you've tackled some core elements of your actions ? Let us know! We'll see you next week for Episode 4 on recognition.
