ChatGPT gave me six ways to build organizational culture. ChatGPT may be a powerful AI, but I would not want it to be my leader! This week I will dissect some of the more problematic elements of ChatGPT’s suggestions for building culture.
MVP: Supporting people is more powerful than articulating a vision!
Imagine this… A new leader comes in with lots of energy and announces a new ambitious vision that motivates and excites everyone!
And, two years later, that leader is gone.
Communicate clear values and vision: Leaders should communicate their organization's values and vision in a clear and consistent manner. This helps employees understand what the organization stands for and how their work contributes to its success.
People before purpose! ChatGPT tells us to make the organization the focal point of the work, but in the words of Dr. Jan Osborn, “without people there is no purpose.”
Additionally, leaders should not be the ones creating the values and the vision. Strategic leaders work collaboratively to help people clarify their visions and values and then give voice to the vision and values.
Today’s intention: Think about the times you have struggled in your job, either to do it or to be happy in it. Was the problem the vision, or something else?
