Culture is a collection of beliefs, behaviours, and states of being that are held by a group of people at a particular time. It is often described as “how we do things around here”. It exists on multiple levels, from small groups such as teams or families, through to broader groups such as social classes, national cultures, or pan-national cultures. It is complex, messy, and near impossible to design and create in an orderly way.
That said, culture is integral to the performance and operations of a team, and it can be changed to improve team performance. The key question is ‘how’. Before we get to the how, however, we need to understand the ‘what’ and ‘why’.
