Culture is the squishy stuff in an organization that leaders talk about but usually have a hard time articulating. Even more difficult is identifying clear actionable steps to build and reinforce a desired culture. Here are four steps you can begin to implement this week to start building the desired culture in your church or organization.
Step #1 Motivate
Telling stories and tying them to wins and desired behaviors give people a picture of how to behave and what to chase after.
Step #2 Train
Help your people by giving them the abilities they need to make decisions that will reflect and advance the culture you’re trying to create.
Step #3 Model
Leaders by their very nature go first. Moral authority is a part of trusted leadership. The leader needs to be able to say “join me” not just “you should.”
Step #4 Celebrate
What gets celebrated gets repeated. Churches are notorious for talking about needs and motivating people to a cause or action but never talking about the results.
What else would you add to the list? What steps have you taken to intentionally create a desired culture in your church? Leave a comment.
