“A culture is defined as the organisation’s pattern of response to the problems and opportunities it encounters. Three dominant types—pathological, bureaucratic, and generative—are described. These types are shaped by the preoccupations of the unit’s leaders. The workforce then responds to these priorities, creating the culture.”

In what ways might you have a conversation about your org structure that help you perform as a team? I’ve compiled a Team Operating Agreement Template and Field Guide to Team Operating Agreements that might be of assistance. Download below.
