Establish values and commit at the leadership level Start by establishing the values that will keep your employees positive challenged and inspired to develop and grow.

2. Protect culture Your company will undoubtedly change over the course of its history. How you react to that change is important. Have solid change management principles in place that will protect your company’s culture but will also adapt to include positive traits new employees or acquisitions bring along. 3. Make an actionable strategy Define your corporate culture goals and develop a strategy for achievement. Be realistic. You won’t establish or change your company’s culture instantly. Let’s say your company’s goal is to increase community involvement start slow and implement one or two company charity initiatives every couple of months. Gradually add more events until your employees expect look forward to and even drive new initiatives. 4. Hire for fit first Intrinsic value isn’t something you can develop in people but you can develop their training and education. Hire employees who have the enthusiasm to contribute and improve. The training you provide will enhance their traits and your business. Are You Serious About Becoming A Businessman Are you an entrepreneur or a talkrepreneur I’ve rated the four most common types of people who talk about starting businesses. And I’ll rank their likelihood of being launched because I’m in one of those moods. 1. Appateneurs An appateneur is someone who just came up with a new brilliant application for your Smartphone. Perhaps one that can assess whether your shirt is properly tucked in. Or one that monitors your heartbeats while you juggles knives. Again most of these app ideas are just that – ideas. 2. Brokerprenuer

These people often come from the world of services. And they’re usually spot on knowing there is a demand for the new service. Consumer A needs to hire someone to do Service X. Consumer A has no easy way of locating the companies that perform Service X. And while there are companies that perform Service X those companies have no idea how/have no means to reach Consumer A. 3. Gadgeteneurs Gadgeteneurs are those who come up with an idea for a new gadget that will supposedly make life easier. Gadgeteneurs typically do not have business ideas. They simply have product ideas. Like a toothbrush that combs your beard while you brush your teeth. Or a coffeemaker that reads the newspaper to you. 4. I-Think-There’s-An-Opening-in-the-Marketpreneur To me this is where I see entrepreneurs get the most aggressive about starting their own business. They went shopping for something. They either couldn’t find what they were looking for or what they found seemed too overpriced. So they don’t think there are enough companies out there selling them or selling them at the right price. Time to pounce. Starting these ventures can be expensive to start. And the I-Think-There’s-An-Opening-in-the- Marketpreneur may be entering an industry he/she has no experience working in. But as a consumer of this product he/she still feels qualified to get into the game and solve the problem that exists. Of all the entrepreneurs I meet this tends to be the category I meet the most.
