Executive Leadership Strategies: Creating A Balanced Corporate Culture

Today's wide variety of newly emerging technologies, services, and industries are shaping the current workplace, and many Executive Leaders elect to adopt a more informal company culture. It is important to note that informal does not mean "unprofessional." Rather, it refers to the more casual and flexible cultures and attitudes that develop within an organization beyond the formal policies of that organization. Employees may feel stifled in a rigidly formal environment, and informality can encourage creativity and increase motivation, which both will improve a company's overall production. Another benefit of an informal company culture is that it can evolve organically rather than being strictly dictated through policy.

That being said, one way an Executive Leader can foster an informal company culture is through formal culture. A formal structure, a clear outline of a company's goals, and the manner in which these goals are to be achieved provide the framework within which a productive informal culture can develop and flourish. Many successful businesses have employees who embrace the direction of their company and understand how their position contributes and shapes the success of that company. No one knows a job as well as the person who does it, and fully informed employees can better direct their skills toward a common goal. Successful Executive Leaders work to keep employees up to date on changes in company structure that affect them and are open to suggestions from them.

Be aware of the unique informal culture that already exists in your company. Businesses are social groups, and each has its own quirks. Build on the strengths that would best serve the company. Some organizations thrive on competition while others benefit from collaboration and cooperation. Sometimes a casual atmosphere encourages creativity, while at other times a more buttoned-down approach sets the right attitude. An existing informal culture should already point toward what is most appropriate for that organization.

Take the time to engage your staff in events that will foster motivation and strengthen connections. "Team-building exercises" are a little cliché in today’s business world, but oftentimes something as simple as having an office-wide lunch once a month can create a more welcoming atmosphere in an organization. A relaxed atmosphere makes sharing ideas easier and everyone, from your management team to your administrative team, will enjoy working in a pleasant environment. More elaborate events that require employees to use their off-work hours can be beneficial but also risky as some may see it as an imposition on their free time. Consider if utilizing company time for team-building events will motivate your employees and encourage them to share their ideas.

It is possible for a productive informal company culture to occur simply through fortunate circumstances. However, if an Executive Leader possesses an insightful perspective of her corporation’s ideal company culture, she can actively shape the right environment that will produce results.
