If you want to have a great culture from top to bottom, you must eliminate any semblance of an “us and them” mentality.

Every company I’ve studied that has a great culture also has a leader living out that culture that is fully committed to it. These leaders pose questions to themselves regularly about what they are doing to maintain a healthy culture. They also tend to formalize their culture to ensure it is sustainable.

I definitely made my share of bad hires in the early days as a business owner: The salesperson who never made a sale. The admin who stole our software for her sideline business. The marketing rep who continually fell asleep at her desk and did her personal errands while out of the office on “company business.”

How can you ignite, fuel, and accelerate both yourself and your organization? What drives “Firestarters” -- people who create new things, disrupt conventional thinking, and start successful businesses, non-profits, and movements? We chose the Firestarter analogy in order to go beyond the business definition of entrepreneurs and capture the actions of ordinary people who light up the world by doing extraordinary things.

Let’s begin by acknowledging an undisputable truth: Change is difficult. For everybody. Plus, it’s often unsuccessful. In fact, a survey done by the Economist Intelligence Unit uncovered that the failure rate for change is about 44%. That’s a lot of wasted time, energy, and money.

Don’t wind up in the 44%. As a leader, make your company’s change successful.

It can start with a whisper: We’re merging… our sales comp is down the drain.

When dramatic change occurs within a company, like a merger or acquisition, a vacuum of communication from leadership will be filled with rumor. One of the most common: an acquisition depletes an organization’s resources so much that staff cuts will be necessary. In reality, human capital is essential to organizational success, and a significant asset in a merger or company purchase. So, when should employees start hearing about organizational change?
