"To win in the marketplace you must first win in the workplace.”

Creating a culture in an organizational environment where people work well together and are supportive of one another is not an easy task. And once created, such a culture is also not automatic thereafter – it must be guarded, nurtured, and maintained.
With this in mind, I will look at several factors that can be consciously developed which will contribute to achieving a healthy relational workplace culture that is productive toward achieving the objectives of the enterprise.
At least three factors are involved in establishing a positive culture. Each is focused around how every team member regards themselves - and how they respect and interface with other members of the team.
Over the next few weeks I will explore each of these factors and then summarize them for easy reference going forward.
