In order for a company to have a thriving culture that’s aligned and moving towards the goals that really matter, team members also must be aligned and thriving.
Setting the foundation for a brilliant, high-achieving culture is a significant first step to achieve that. So is recruiting for cultural fit, including value and mindset alignment, and ensuring that the team’s talent believes in what you believe in.
But what else can a company do to help their team members reach higher levels of alignment?
Investing in your talent’s well-being and performance is a great way of making sure you’re setting them up for success. This can be achieved by designing and implementing cultural initiatives that provide your people with a chance to connect and reflect.
A great tool for that purpose is meditation. What this can look like is, for example, having live meditations that people can join. The sessions can be as short as ten minutes or as long as you’d like, and creativity can come into play if you have variations with different themes.
Having at least one weekly cultural initiative can go a long way in giving your team members a chance to reset and realign, and nurturing their connection and sense of belonging to the organization.
One thing that can help keep these initiatives in check is having a Cultural Ambassador, who can be embodied by different people within the organization. The key is that he or she is someone who shows up, makes a point of prioritizing cultural initiatives regularly, and encourages other team members to participate and contribute.
When it comes to nurturing a thriving culture and fostering a deep sense of belonging and community, it is also incredibly beneficial if the CEO can join at least one of these initiatives monthly.
