Fascinating Read on Culture

I (frankly) find most of the reading and writing on culture to sit within a range of shallow garbage and intellectual bullshit. Don’t get me wrong, Culture matters – but behaviour is how culture is expressed. Culture, like the word “Weather”, needs a qualifier to be explained. This is a very good read on culture and how it is engineered and developed.

Crucially, the organisational response to “culture” is often a response to a multitude of factors that have nothing to do with “culture”. And the same is true of relationships… So, before you go throwing the culture label around, read on… so good

Relationships are more likely to develop based on brief, frequent, passive contacts made going to and from regular locations than develop based on shared attitudes, values, and beliefs.

L. Festinger, S. Schachter, K. Back, “The Spatial Ecology of Group Formation” (1950)
