    Culture / Paradigms are a multitude of habits. Habits are expressed as behaviours without any conscious through. To create a new result thats permanent, must establish new habits. It is therefore the responsibility and choice when individuals & teams take responsibility for their life & results.

    A paradigm is caused by genetics & environmental influences that we allow to alter our thinking which causes behavioural patterns & in turn our results. To change your results you must be willing to change your thinking and behaviours through habit and auto-suggestion. Change your paradigm (habits) and you change how you create your results.

    In corporate culture, any change to organisations should be changed simultaneously by change of attitude of its members. Supported and encouraged and modelled by its leaders. People change when its their choice, otherwise they will not change!

    Culture is a paradigm and it is influenced by attitudes (thoughts, feelings & actions) of its people. To shift a paradigm: identify results to improve; results are based on the image & visualisation and habits present.

    When considering corporate culture, to change an individual or teams results and raise the bar (lift sales revenue, increase productivity etc), there must be an improvement on the bottom line: change the culture. People operate with individual paradigms & come together to form a team – corporate paradigm (culture).

    To change team culture:

    1. Identify team habits
    2. Choose 1 or 2 that want transformation
    3. Work towards consistently forming the new habit.
    Results are dependent on your paradigm (culture) to change your results, you need to change your habirs, take control of your circumstances, environment & condition.

    In my experience, corporate culture is an elusive beast hunted by overstaffed HR departments with A-Level psychology PowerPoint presentations and GCSE level staff surveys. The point of it all is to convince carp managers that it is not their fault, but ‘workforce culture’ that is the issue.

    In fact, contrary to HR belief, pi$$ed off staff can usually be fixed by decent wages, decent working arrangements and a couple of managerial firings.

    I think it's very sad that all the bollux in the OP is regraded by some as what professionalism is about.
