Building A Worldclass Culture
World Class (definition): Ranking among the foremost in the world; of an international standard of excellence; of the highest order.
Culture (definition): The totality of socially transmitted behavior patterns, arts, beliefs, institutions, and all other products of human work and thought.
Building a world class culture! What a behemoth of a topic, and even more of a task to create it. It may not be as difficult as some may think though. If an organization's leader has it within him or herself to be world class, there is a good chance they will produce more after their own kind. Becoming a world class organization requires intentionality, perseverance, and re-energized commitment. Where mediocrity applauds the status quo, world class individuals and organizations are never content. Simply put, they sleep, eat, and breath excellence. It is a habit for them and a way of life. Their commitment to high level productivity transcends just being a practice, it is at the very core of their belief system. World class cultures are always looking to refine themselves, remain cutting edge, serve their clients/stakeholders better, and improve upon failures and take their success to even higher thresholds.
