Culture and Organizational Change

Hey, what's up, heroes? It's 2018, and I am back. And this week, I'm gonna be talking about how to change your culture. And, stick around 'til the end, I'll give you a little update on what I been up to in the last couple weeks.

Hi my name's Roman Ryder, and on this channel, I'll help you unlock your powers and be the hero of your story. If you're new to my channel, make sure you click on subscribe. I put out new videos every week, and you don't want to miss out. All right, so how do you change your culture? The first thing is to do and say what you believe. So, you got to get out there, and you got to tell people what you're all about. You want to make this message super simple, so they can easily repeat it. And that way, you start to get consistent results, so even if you're not around to make a decision, they're gonna do and say what you believe because you've consistently and persistently got out there and told them what you believe.

All right, the other thing is that actions speaks louder than words. So, they're gonna be watching you very closely. So, you need to make sure you're ... once again, you're consistently doing what you believe. So, you can't just talk about it, you got to back it up with your actions. Sometimes that's gonna be painful, but you got to do it. You got to show them that you're all about this change that you want.

All right, so what's next? Well, you have to back them up. So, no matter what happens, if they're out there doing what you believe, then you need to have their backs, you need to show them that you're gonna support them, that you're gonna take responsibility when things don't go right, because they were trying to do the right thing. And along the same lines, you want to recognize behaviors you want and you want to coach the behaviors you don't want. So, when they trust you and they know that you've got their backs, they're gonna be more comfortable, they're gonna perform better, and they're gonna go out there and do their best for you.

All right, so the other thing is that this isn't gonna happen overnight. So, once again, consistent and persistent. You got to keep at it, you got to get out there and talk to people. You got to keep putting that simple message out there, that simple message they can remember when you're not around so they can do what you expect of them no matter what. You're empowering them to go out and do that, and things are gonna go great.

But, for all of you geeks, stick around for a couple more minutes, I'll tell you what I've been up to the last couple weeks.

So, first of all, I've been playing tons of Dungeons and Dragons. That's something I haven't done really consistently since the '80s. I've got a character I'm absolutely loving. I've got a level seven arcane trickster rogue, I cast all illusion spells, he's using range attacks with the bow, lots of sneak attack damage, very stealthy, very fun. The other thing is, I've actually started designing my first adventure. Kind of started out, I was painting miniatures for the first time ever. Painted a couple of miniatures, did one of my rogue. Really liked it, they came out pretty good, so I kind of went on a miniature buying spree, got some more paints, started writing up some stories to go with his, and drawing out some dungeons. And so, I've been totally geeking out with Dungeons and Dragons.

The other thing is, it's been playing little bit of WOW. I'm up to level 55 on a night elf hunter. Having good fun with that, doing the beast master thing. And that's pretty much it, I just kind of been geeking out in my little fantasy world, so if that's your thing, very cool. I also have been watching a lot of Critical Role. So, if you haven't checked out Critical Role and you love Dungeons and Dragons, make sure you check out the Geek and Sundry channel and watch Critical Role. Matthew Mercer is an amazing dungeon master.

All right, so I hope you enjoyed this video. Make sure you connect with me on Facebook. I've got the hero mastermind, I'll put a link below. Love to talk to you there about leadership stuff, Dungeons and Dragons, whatever it is. Star Wars. Anything along those lines, I'm there for you, so I will see you over on Facebook. Thanks for watching, I'll see you next time.
