Practical Steps to Explore and Work on Culture
In the workplace, social contracts can be developed or updated by taking a detailed look at how you work and what you believe is most important. Be pro-active and curious about how you can enliven your organizational culture on any of these levels:

  • Relating: Explore your Social Contracts and prioritize creating a Relational above Transactional culture (put people first)
  • Work Norms: Dynamics around the office or on teams – What are the norms?
    • Where is the power – who holds it, how do they use it?
    • How do you collaborate and make decisions?
    • How do you deal with conflict?
    • What new norms have come in since 2020?
    • In remote, hybrid or uncertain work environments: what are the conversations you need to have? 
  • Meetings – Unpack and dissect how you collaborate, group time.
    • How effective are your meetings?
    • What’s the purpose, outcome, and process for each kind of meeting you have (POP)?
    • Could you improve them?
    • How are they changing? How can you change them to be most effective?
    • Are people excited about meeting? (I’m not kidding with that question)
  • Communicating – What are the norms?
    • How are these norms changing in a hybrid, virtual or changing work reality?
    • What are you learning?
  • Create structure and design how you’re going to approach this exploration
