Have you ever wondered why so many business fail, even though they seem to be doing all the right tings to grow their business. The answer very often lies in the culture of the business – or lack of it.

At ActionCOACH we use the word culture to encapsulate the combined values of a business – the things that it stands for, the things that drives it on and the “rules” by which the business is run. The culture underpins the Vision and Mission of the business.

Take the time in your business today to really understand your culture – If you need help – please contact me.

Once you understand exactly what the business holds dearest, use this to communicate with your team. The culture of the business must challenge people to be better and have higher standards – If you need help doing this, drop me an email.

Over a period of time, communicate your vision, your mission and  your culture to your team by what you say and by what you do every day. Sustained and consistent focus on developing a culture is what allows it to exist and flourish. Remember there is always the gravitational pull of negative forces to work against to the culture has to be strong and empowering for you and your team. If you need help with this – call me.

About the author,

Hi I’m Derek O’Dwyer. I have been an ActionCOACH for the last 18 years. I live in Clare and work with businesses around Ireland to take their business to the next level. I am passionate about business and providing help and advice. In the past 18 years I have worked with over 400 business owners helping them and their business. I adapt my coaching depending on what you and your business need. I find that each coaching relationship is different but as long as we understand that we have a common objective with timescales, positive things happen quickly. I am a firm believer i the concept of “what you can measure you can manage” and “what you measure you can improve”. Key performance indicators and accountability form the bedrock of my coaching platforms. If making more money from your business, working less hours in your business and having a great team running your business then it’s worth having a discussion with me. If you are willing to implement changes I will be there to help every step of the way. In terms of personal accolades and recognition I have been awarded ActionCOACH of the year in Ireland every year for the last ten years In 2019 I was inducted into the ActionCOACH Global Hall Of Fame I was global Rookie Coach of The Year in 2002 having achieved remarkable success as the first ActionCOACH in Europe. Many of my clients have also received awards from their peers for their business improvements.
