Culture: the leadership mirror

I just came across a definition of culture that I had never read before: the leadership mirror.

It’s not as good as my favorite definition, which is “culture is an outcome of your processes”. This last definition tells you how to create a culture. But the first one tells you who is responsible for culture. After all, leadership creates (or tolerates) the processes that shape the culture.

So if you are a leader and unsatisfied with your company’s culture, you know where to look.
