After reflecting on the importance of culture in a company, I connected the dots to the importance of culture (or tradition) in a family.
Yes, a company can be like a family, but in this case I’m referring specifically to a family.
I previously stated that leaders are always responsible for the culture of their organization. This applies to families as well.
Parents have the same responsibility to establish values, priorities and rituals within their families. Just as with businesses, it's a conscious decision.
A family needs the same guidance and nurturing that a team does.
Great family traditions (or company cultures) don't occur by accident, the parents (or leaders) must champion them.
