Culture is hard to define. Sometimes, culture can be understood as: 1. Specific patterns of behavior (e.g., “This is just the way we do things around here.”) 2. Hard to explain to outsiders (e.g., “I can’t explain it; it just is.”) 3. Developed over time (e.g., “We’ve always done it this way.”) 4. The beliefs that organize behavior (e.g., “We want people to feel welcomed here so they will keep coming back.”) 5. A system that forms the glue of relationships (e.g., “We are honest with each other and aren’t afraid to give constructive feedback.”) 6. What leaders pass on (e.g., "This organization is mostly a reflection of the character of the leadership.") What of the above definitions best describes your viewpoint of culture?
