Designing an Organization's Culture in Six Parts: The Recognition 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 4. In this episode we discuss Recognition: the types of incentives and rewards that support values-driven behaviors.

  • Your hosts of Summer School, Josh Levine and Rachel Davis are back, with an introduction to the fourth component of culture and why recognizing and rewarding the right behaviors keeps a company smooth sailing.

  • Rachel introduces the Great Mondays template on Recognition, in the Miroverse, and walks you through the bells and whistles of the board, including how to catalog activities.

  • Your fearless leader, Josh, explains the four different types of recognition and shares the ultimate graphic asset to identify these rewards. Here you'll discover the difference between formal recognition from leaders and peers, and the informal variety as well.

  • Collaborate! For all you summer school students who've been following each episode and doing assignments with us, that earlier work will come into play here. Gold Star for you.

  • Philosophical discussion on the value (or not) of ice cream parties.

  • Evaluate the different types of rewards you've dreamed up and dropped onto the blank board with Josh and Rachel.

  • Don't be fooled by how short this bulleted list is. This exercise is really dynamic.
