#13b: What is culture?
What is culture? It is a consistent set of patterns for thought and behaviour. It is your company's shared language. It is your group's norms — for example, how meetings are run, or how feedback is given.
Parts of your culture are even more foundational. Culture is shared values and fundamental assumptions; how the world works and how your group should act in it is explained and shaped by culture.
Like values, culture is not what is dictated; culture is.
