You have a Combination Culture, meaning your organization’s culture demonstrates attributes from multiple culture types. Many of your responses can be categorized as positive, but you haven’t quite reached the ideal ‘Belonging Culture’ yet. Keep up the good work, but be extra vigilant against homogeneity, excessive politeness, and fear-based leadership. Also keep in mind that we live in a fast-paced world, and businesses that fail to make an active effort to foster a positive culture will ultimately fall behind.
With a Combination Culture, you’re close to having the best culture type, but there is still some work to be done. What you’re striving for, a Belonging Culture, invites the whole employee — all their life experiences, their strengths, their weaknesses, everything — into the workplace and embraces curiosity. This type of culture encourages engagement, creativity, and open communication. Employees respect one another but aren’t afraid to have the tough conversations that quality work sometimes demands. This is a very collaborative work environment with a modern approach to power dynamics and workflow.
