I became engaged in a valuable conversation this week with a wise consultant during an accreditation I was running with a group who want to become partners of Walking the Talk.
She pointed out that I often used the word 'good' to describe a certain type of culture, and suggested that 'effective' might be better. I think she is right. A culture needs to be FIT FOR PURPOSE which means that it enables the organisation to become more effective at what it is trying to achieve. Think of it as a tool kit.
