What is the “Soul” of your Business?

As part of a potential organizational change project, I recently read a book called All Customers Are Irrational by Bill Cusick. One of many things that he said that really stuck with me was that companies need to articulate their soul.

It all started with the way that our clients perceive our people. I typically heard things like: “amazing,” “incredibly creative,” “I trust you,” “truly impressive,” and “it’s clear that we got your best.” And the way that our people feel about the projects that they are working on: “I own this,” “I’m accountable,” and “I’ll find a way.” So, with a little help from our writers, I made my best effort to distill this into what I believe is the soul of who we are: “Creative, personally invested, flexible and accountable.”

Blueline’s “soul” has become a tremendous sense of pride for me, my Partners and our team.

Whether you are embarking on a major change, developing leaders, or inviting new Associates into your organization, I would strongly encourage you to define the “soul’ of your business.
