The Rites and Rituals of Corporate Life and why Culture is important, summary for winding-roads.ca

Corporate Cultures is a 1982 publication on The Rites and Rituals of Corporate Life by Terrence E. Deal and Allan A. Kennedy.

Much of the subject matter is still relevant. You can be sucked into a whirlpool of ideologies by just using Google and Wikipedia under Corporate Culture. The Corporate Culture created by Steve Jobs at Apple is a great example of how a corporate culture can benefit everyone.

You often do not give culture much thought, but most successful companies will tell you it is worthy of serious consideration. Who and what are you and why should it matter is more than just a catchy byline. It is what binds you to your customers, employees and shareholders.

In a recent PWC report they said ” Now more than ever, senior leaders need to have both a clear and compelling vision and walk the talk. Canadians want to see their companies’ leaders follow through on their commitments to their people. They want to see their leaders setting a clear path towards building trust by giving their people a shared sense of purpose, while also making sure they feel valued, connected and visibly supported.” Countries have cultures that are in a constant state of flux.

In todays Canadian landscape addressing our culture in regards to women, our responsibilities to our aboriginal peoples, our disadvantaged citizens and minorities all need our attention. Being Canadian is an honour, and we can all be part of developing a culture to make us proud. (Duncan Fraser, January, 2023)
