Creating A High Performance Culture

Creating a high-performance culture with requires a systematic approach to managing the performance of organizations, teams and individuals.

While leadership and discipline are the defining elements of that approach, they are not the only elements.

Over at the Ivey Business Journal, these authors outline a road map for changing organizational behaviour and, ultimately, for implementing, promoting and sustaining a high-performance culture.

In order to make this disciplined performance culture work, organizations must have:
  • Openness and trust
  • Managed differences
  • Simplicity and focus
  • Playing to people's strengths

BOTTOMLINE: "Human performance is the function of many influences: accountability, feedback, motivation, skills and knowledge, rewards and recognition. It is the combination of these factors that results in the desired performance and the associated leadership
behaviors that support the performance culture."
