    A culture is really a set of interactions between people within an organization as it represents the ability to work together, deal with conflict with one another, and act as a cohesive team unit.

    1. If managers invest in the positive things employees do by bringing them in the office and praising them; whereas, most employees think when they are brought into the office it’s for something they did wrong.
    2. Can employees talk positively about each other and praise one another?
    3. Are managers skilled at handling conflict for the greater good of the organization and certainly the people?
    4. Is the word team a cliché or concept versus an action that people understand and represent on a daily basis?
    5. Are people free to express ideas without fear retribution?
    6. Do employees clearly understand their career progression and how their manager is going about helping them achieve it?
    7. Are managers evaluated by retention, people promotion, and reduction in recruiting costs?

    Your culture cannot be a tagline or mission statement without a set of actions that represent it. This requires managers and leaders to be skilled at a variety of levels from talent development to conflict resolution to career progression development  as well as many other attributes.
