Accountability Culture

Just hearing the word accountability cause some to cringe. To others they don’t even hear the word. Yet others are taken to a higher level of engagement. It is easy to indicate a level of accountability. It is far more difficult to enact behaviors which are consistent with delivering on accountability.

Elastic Culture

As we observe the culture around us we ALL need to have some level of elasticity with the pull and twists of change. The current normal will not be the normal of tomorrow. The good and the bad we experience today will again come to us in new and different forms tomorrow and into the future. If we are too ridged and dry up the stretch we all have inside, we will end up snapping.

Culture – A Labor of Love

Conversation Culture

Take off the blinders and look around you for a few minutes.  What do you see? Be honest with yourself.  Our culture has evolved to a complaining culture from a conversation culture.  We complain about this or that but take little effort to correct what may be wrong or out of alignment. If we see someone taking action do we just hop on board their movement or do we actually take time to evaluate the impact of the change being pushed?  I call upon our Native American Indians who viewed their actions in terms of multiple generations.  How would their action impact the next 7 generations? They would talk about it before moving forward with action. Conversation can and should include constructive conflict and dialogue. The changes which come from this dialogue are healthy when all parties respect one another and listen and learn from talking through matters.

Cultural Keys

A key is a very valuable item.  It has wonderful potential to unlock new and exciting things.  It can also open the door to many challenges. Our culture is filled with many doors to open and explore.  The key is to use the correct key in the right door to explore what is best for our culture. Doors can be broken down without the use of keys.  The result is damage to the culture just as it would be to your home if the key was not used.
