A Strong Culture Looks More like a Sports Team than a Family
Garrett Gray, President and CEO, Next Gear Solutions
Many view the family as a model for the perfect company culture. I admit that when starting Next Gear Solutions, I thought the same thing. A family is much better than a cold business environment that cares only about the company’s needs and not about the needs of the employee, right? If faced with only those two options, I would continue to choose the “family business model,” but I believe there is another more optimal choice, which is the “sports team” business model.
First, what are the downsides to the family model and how are they inconsistent with even the friendliest of business cultures? 1. The family model suggests a lack of choice in the relationship on both sides. We don’t draft our family and most family relationships are ones we did not get to choose. We all have that crazy uncle or cousin who disrupts family get-togethers, making the holidays less than ideal. While we may sometimes try distance as a remedy, generally speaking, we can’t trade family members who don’t fit well to a different team. In a family, relationships that are less than optimal often do not get addressed directly because there are few options for change on either side. (read more)
