A positive organisational culture emerges through the living out of individual and collective purpose, values and vision. An organisation’s vision provides the blueprint for success and collective purpose provides the necessary guidance. There must be alignment around shared organisational values which become the lived out behaviours of an organisation. Individual and collective investment in purpose and vision must all be supported and achievable.
Organisational culture must be envisioned before being enacted. Negative cultures emerge if no strategy is used to define a vision. In a community committed to learning, a vision and purpose based around positive relational experiences must be the central focus if the right culture is to reveal itself.
