Cultivating Success: Unveiling the Power of Organizational Culture

culture Nov 21, 2023

In the realm of organizational excellence, the words of management guru Peter Drucker ring particularly true: "Culture eats strategy for breakfast." While strategic plans and objectives certainly play a crucial role, it's the organizational culture that holds the real transformative power.

Understanding the Power of Culture
Peter Drucker's iconic quote encapsulates a fundamental truth – no matter how well-crafted your strategy is, the culture within your organization will ultimately shape its destiny. Culture is the invisible force that influences how people work together, make decisions, and respond to challenges. It's the heartbeat of an organization, determining whether strategies succeed or fall short.

The Breakfast Table Analogy
Imagine your organization as a breakfast table. Your strategy is the meal meticulously planned and prepared, representing your goals, objectives, and action plans. But, just as breakfast is often accompanied by a variety of cultural nuances...

How to Steer a Drifting Culture

Gallup Workplace

In recent years, definitions of work culture -- "how we do things around here" -- have changed tremendously. Many aspects (e.g., processes, technology, workflows, training) are morphing as leaders adapt to global pressures and new employee expectations.

Some shifts are obvious, such as dramatic changes in where employees work. However, most culture change is subtle, slow and difficult to define. For example, culture change might manifest as:

  • differences in onboarding experiences and how new hires form relationships
  • shifts in team structures and workflows due to external pressures, such as supply chain concerns
  • new communication norms aimed at keeping hybrid employees connected

Culture drift may...

Inside Nasdaq’s Acquisition of Quandl: Lessons on Timing and Negotiation for Entrepreneurs

How to Make Your Email List Worth 7-Figures

smallbusiness Jul 07, 2022

In 2007, Laura Roeder started selling online courses on how to market through social media. Her courses gained popularity, resulting in Roeder growing an email list of around 70,000 people. Inspired to further serve her customers, she decided to create a social media scheduling software.  

In 2014, MeetEdgar was born. It was one of the first social media planning tools that allowed you to schedule your social media content. Piggy backing off the list she had built from her online course business, the company hit $1 million in recurring revenue in only 11 months.  

But the early success began to slow, and the business hit a plateau.   

Growing tired of the day-to-day and uninspired to grow her business, Roeder decided it was time to sell. She sent out a cold email advertising her company to twenty potential acquirers. Her outreach garnered a lot of attention, ultimately resulting in MeetEdgar being acquired by Sureswift Capital in 2021 for a...
