Should You Manage People or the Environment?
Fish do not notice the water in which they swim.
Every company has a culture. There are myths and stories that are told which reflect the company culture. Its hard to define, its difficult to see and it affects every decision, project and action a company takes.
Is it easier for a fish to swim with the current or against it? Does the pounding rain, rocking waves and conflicting currents lead to curious and creative fish or small, protectionist and defensive fish?
Should you try and manage the fish or will you do better managing the environment?
