Hey, Sig!

Beautiful analogies and so true.

Was in a meeting with a potential client a few weeks back who was looking for "culture", and they asked: How did you guys come together? ("We" are an architect, a marketer, a finance geek and an educator.)

Our answer seems simple to us, but sometimes confounds others: We create possibility, or point it out. "Cultures" and structures, if they are gonna last and be durable, need to derive from that central identity and desire. It's only hard if you make it so, eh?



Hi Mark!

You certainly pinpointed a good type of culture!

I should have stressed (in the last part): "Taking the threat out, the defensive mechanism caused by the structure issue, should enable good and useful culture, rules and whatever to grow dynamically!" :-)
It's after all the static stuff that ends up giving problems.

Thanks again!
