Building Culture



While many people see culture as the traditions, accomplishments, and shared references within a community, these are just the reverberations of what truly defines a community’s culture: the expectations we have of one another and the behaviors we value. Whether in a family, workplace, classroom, neighborhood, social network, or nation, when we talk about building culture, we are talking about defining how we will treat each other and go about accomplishing our goals. While no single individual can determine the culture of a community, we can have a decided impact on the culture of every community we’re a part of when we decide what behaviors we will encourage—and what we won’t tolerate—and to hold ourselves accountable to our own values.
