Culture Cycle

LeadeReliability Culture Cycle   

How it works

Alignment and Ability
You have a direction you want to go personally or you want your organization to go with you.  Since you are passionate about that direction you can create alignment.   Once you have the alignment you and your organization have some ability to meet your goals. But unless you have thought about and are practicing LeadeReliability you are not getting near the results you could.

In order to increase your results and move them in the direction you want to drive them, you have to create awareness with others. You have to give them a reason to care.  Not everyone but initially just one more person.  You need to get one other person excited about what you care about.  If you can, you have started the journey.  

If you have some organizational influence then through your attempt to create awareness you will get others to notice what it is you care about.  It doesn't mean they care about it, but they are aware of it.  If they develop their own personal reason to care then you have captured another heart and they will be a significant help to you.They wil begin to lead.  But if they are simply aware of what you are interested in, they at best say "I completely agree with that, someone should do something about it."  You have their corporate accountability and their attention but it stops there.  You will get no action until they discover why they care.  Your job as a leader is to give them that reason.

Proactive Behaviors
The cycle only continues for those whose hearts have been captured.  And if the focus is minimizing unplanned events, those who have developed their personal reason to care will begin to proactively take action to begin to minimize unplanned events.  They will begin to perform five unique behaviors that will allow them to have a positive impact when it comes to minimizing unplanned events.

Learn and Teach
Anytime you do anything you can learn from that action.  So for those who are taking proactive behaviors they are beginning to learn what kinds of behaviors minimize the impact of unplanned events.  Here again is a critical point in the cultural development cycle for both the individual and the organization.  If the individual who is learning is not teaching the cycle stops.  Because leaders teach.  Let me say that again, LEADERS TEACH.  Unless we teach what we learn, then no one else will benefit from our learning and everyone else will have to learn it for themselves.  Let me say it again LEADERS TEACH.  There are five reasons that people typically don't teach, but all are easily solvable.  And when teaching begins it allows three things to happen

  • Raises Awareness
  • Increases Ability
  • Confirms Alignment

Without teaching the culture can't develop the way you want it too and you will continue to waste time and resources, but if teaching occurs the cycle continues. 

This is where most individuals and organizations fail.  They don't have the patience to create the desired culture.  They either get distracted, impatient or in a rush for results that can't begin to occur to any substantial degree until the majority of the organization is leading.  In order for LeadeReliability to develop you must change the culture and that happens one person at a time. Every person in the organization must figure out why they care and become a leader themselves and that takes time.  YOU and YOUR NEW LEADERS have to say "I need to do something", then do it and then learn and teach.  One by one people will see the significant personal benefits of minimizing the impact of unplanned events and they will begin to lead.
