We all know that culture matters, but we also know that cultivating a healthy culture is really difficult. Many of us have been on teams with healthy cultures, and we’ve also been on teams with unhealthy cultures. It’s easy to know the difference when you are in it, but it’s much harder to know how to change it for the better. In this short video, I look at three keys to cultivating a healthy culture in our churches and on our teams:
- Obsessive focus
- Unapologetic repetition
- Intentional staffing
However, the crucial context for these three keys is community. Like the Cedars of Lebanon referred to in the Bible, great leaders grow together. When we cultivate healthy team cultures, we are creating an environment for leaders (plural) to flourish and be fruitful.
