Team Culture - Learning from NCAA
I was reading an article by Peter Schroeder entitled, Changing Team Culture. One section read: Ten NCAA Division I head coaches were interviewed. Each guided a previously unsuccessful team to championship levels within five years. A qualitative analysis indicated that these turnarounds featured changes in team culture. Coaches started the cultural change process by creating core sets of values specific to their teams. To ingrain these values, coaches taught them with several tactics, recruited athletes who would embrace team values, and punished and rewarded consistent with the values. These actions were taken with respect to the unique environments of each team. The results were generally consistent with the literature on organizational culture change. Cultural change and evolution never ends. What are you do to positively influence and move the culture in your Organization?
