Russ’ 3 steps to ensure keeping a thriving culture
1. Ensure you are communicating from the leadership team
Make sure you give ample time to updates and making sure everyone in the company is aware of and on board with what is happening. Whether this comes from leadership or department heads communication is key
2. Be as transparent as you can be
You’re not all together in one space so visibility is harder. Constant communication and a weekly round-up is key to making sure everyone in the company is always up to date.
3. Remind everyone of all the work that’s happening
Use your cross-functionality. Highlight challenges, celebrate successes and crowd source great ideas from the whole team.
