Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast

6 PAX joined YHC on beautiful morning at HardNocs for another addition of “Meathead Monday”.  It’s great living in Florida with 60+ degrees in January!

This week’s Foundational Q Point is Language (F2). Effective groups have a unique Language.  Language helps to create culture which is critical to success.

From Q Source “Like the Army and the Patriots, F3 is also an organization that seeks Advantage. To do that Effectively requires a unique Language, and for us that is the Lexicon.”

There is a famous Peter Drucker quote that says that “culture eats strategy for breakfast”.  This implies that the culture of your company always determines success regardless of how effective your strategy may be.

When he said that culture eats strategy for breakfast, Drucker pointed out the importance of the human factor in any company. No matter how detailed and solid your strategy is, if the people executing it don’t nurture the appropriate culture, your projects will fail
