When people clash with your culture

in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

If you’re lucky, you’re leading a synergistic culture. That means you’re pulling in the same direction as the people in the ranks.

If you’re not lucky, you’re leading an antagonistic culture. That means you’re pushing outlooks that most of your people don’t value.

Example: You have a leadership role in a stodgy, family-run enterprise … and your people are itching to take risks.

How can you lead most effectively in an antagonistic culture?
  • Hire people who share your outlook.

  • Promote activities that people from the “opposing” culture can perform and enjoy, while contributing to your overall agenda.
A diversity of outlooks can be synergistic. Be a creative leader and discover how.
