    Applying Values and Developing your Remote Team Culture with Bretton Putter

    Applying Values and Developing your Remote Team Culture with Bretton Putter

    Allan of RemoteCompass.com chats with https://twitter.com/brettonputter?lang=en (Bretton Putter), CEO of https://www.culturegene.ai/ (CultureGene.ai)
    Brett is author of https://www.culturegene.ai/books/culture-decks-decoded (Culture Decks Decoded) and https://www.culturegene.ai/books/own-your-culture-book (Own Your Culture.)
    Show notes:
    Brett's team helps clients define, embed, and manage their culture
    Companies in rapid growth find that it's time to invest in company culture
    Brett's research suggests that only one out of 10 companies has done anything about their company culture
    Social distancing measures made organizations more aware of the importance of company culture
    The leadership team allowed the four walls of the office to develop and maintain the culture
    Companies that tend to grow rapidly invest in their culture early
    When an organization is smaller (e.g. 3-person company) and doesn't expect to grow beyond that, they can get away without being too systematic about their culture
    It's important for co-founders to understand your culture and values as they prepare to hire aggressively
    Being systematic about your culture has a lot to do with how much and how fast your headcount will change
    Start thinking about your culture when you're a team of 15 to 20 as it's difficult to connect with everyone everyday
    The first 15 team members are likely hired from the founder's network
    Brett suggests there is no such thing as a "good culture". It's about whether one is a good fit for a company or not
    A culture could be strong yet dysfunctional
    A culture is strong when expectations are well-defined and lived by the company on a daily basis
    You could have a well-defined culture that doesn't drive the business forward
    The companies with the strongest culture, based on Brett's research, started working remotely from day one, because they didn't have the option to do otherwise
    Culture is "the way we do things around here"
    "Culture and brand are two sides of the same coin, but culture comes first"
    As teams switch from co-located work to remote work, the glue that kept them together is weakening
    A well-defined culture brings stability and agility
    Companies that are smart about culture explain what values mean to the organization
    Values should be translated to 'expected behaviors'
    The team should define 3 to 6 behaviors that reflect each company value
    If a company values 'openness', an example behavior is "we don't talk about people behind their backs"
    Your values should inform who you recognize as employee of the month, hire, promote, etc
    If a team member joins a company remotely (e.g. from their own bedroom), they need to hear stories about what's acceptable or not
    You must keep repeating your culture's message. You know you're winning when your team's eyes are starting to roll
