Focus on what’s good – even great – about your company


By Michael McCauley Often when a company’s leadership decides that changes are needed, the intense focus is on what’s wrong. What’s right and good is often undervalued. You might expect that this negative focus is a good thing for advanced strategic management, because isn’t acknowledging what’s wrong vitally important to being able to change? Well, not always. The positive energy, good feelings, and goodwill that results from considering, even concentrating, on what’s being done WELL is often a very valuable asset for corporate culture. This speaks to just this condundrum. It discusses why a negative company culture can be so destructive and because “culture eats strategy for lunch” (Dick Clark, Merck CEO said that), positive focus on what’s worth keeping is such an important thing.
