Environment: Unwritten Ground Rules

Calum MacRae Feb 12, 2020

Your environment doesn’t start and stop with your culture, it also includes: 

  • how your team the team member operates, 
  • your vision,
  • the attitude of the leaders,
  • the attitude of the team,
  • the tools/equipment used,
  • your suppliers, 
  • your technology. 

Leadership

As a leader, looking inwards can be challenging, but it is vital that you are honest with yourself to fully understand your environment.

What environment do you provide? 

DO YOU: 

  • Foster a culture that supports and focuses on the vision of the organisation?
  • Seek out examples of innovation to empower others? Or seek to blame?
  • Celebrate success and growth, or nurture excuses? 
  • Bully or Support? 
  • Ask questions and try to understand, or tell and seek to be understood? 

Chances are if you are not providing a positive and effective environment, you will have issues with the Unwritten Ground Rules.

The Unwritten Ground Rules are probably the most telling indicates of your environment. 

The Unwritten Ground Rules (UGR’s) are what happens when the leader isn’t there. If the team is there to succeed, how they behave when no one is watching is as professional as when they are being observed.

So, if you have concerns about the Unwritten Ground Rules within your business, what Environment are you providing?
