"You have to break young people's will first when they are new to us." With such views, here the original sound of a star chef, you don't get very far with the inflowing talents of today's generation. The "poisoned" must give way to a "laughing" corporate culture.

Work must be fun to be good

Far too many management errors arise outdated management practices and a radical management understanding. Unfortunately, there are still plenty of huntsmen in the chef days, people's hamsters and despots, who fall victim to the machismo, and to which no border is sacred.

“Hard chunks” are still admired behind the scenes. And often enough, poor leadership is knowingly tolerated as long as the results are right. That is absurd and pitiful at the same time. A good manager can only be regarded as someone whose numbers are correct, without his people falling by the wayside.

But in an environment in which you can only score with immediate results and maximum returns, many are willing to destroy company values ​​and sacrifice employees in order to achieve short-term profit targets. “If you can't take it, you can let our great occupational health system pep you up,” someone recently told me.

Nobody wants to work for Brutalo managers

But the times when employees were nothing but the game figures of the management are finally over. And thank God, the Dinosaur Rambos from analogue days are now threatened with extinction. Because the social media comet is broken. An update of the corporate cultures is in full swing. And everything is under observation by a broad public.

Those who fatten themselves at the expense of the community are pitilessly put to the pillory. The idols, once so revered, were called disgrace, and they were only sacrificed to them secretly. And that too will soon end, because nobody wants to work for Brutalo-Manager. They dispose of themselves.

Finally, business models are favored, which show impressively: You can also be successful without destroying. You can make good profits and at the same time make the world a little better. Only such acts belong to the spotlight from now on. And managers, who can not or do not want to, can immediately withdraw the management license.

The new working world needs a new working culture

The much-debated Generation Y follows - which is interestingly enough - the theory Y of Douglas McGregor, at that time a management professor at the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). His Y stands for the hypothesis of a fundamentally committed employee, who becomes even more committed through fertilizing, empathic leadership.

The hard chunks still call this “cuddling course”. And those who follow him are laughed at as beta boys. Because wherever the crowbar is used, where there are no key figures for mindfulness and appreciation, where only maximum results count and "calculators" are in charge, there is no room for "soft factors".

However, the socialmedia-affine smartphone elite has long since begun to develop a new, more ethical work culture: value-oriented, self-confident, playful, autonomous. She expects viable offices and a co-operation on the same level. Basically, all the older ones want to. Many of them had always wanted it, but the time was not ripe to demand it.

The result of a good corporate culture

In general, corporate culture is the result of a collective learning process, the care and care of which must never diminish. It encompasses the visible and the invisible, including taboos, secret rules and norms. It determines,

  • like the people in the Company deal with each other
  • as is the relationship with customers and partners,
  • who is hired and who is promoted and how, in which environment the employees work,
  • such as decision-making processes,
  • how problems are tackled,
  • how to deal with errors,
  • what is made of ideas,
  • how conflicts and crises are mastered
  • what is controlled, how
  • according to which performance measures one judges,
  • how success is celebrated.

The company climate is an expression of the corporate culture. It describes the atmosphere felt by the employees at the workplace. It is subject to temperature fluctuations. Corporate culture, on the other hand, is long-term and relatively stable.

I distinguish between a poisoned and a laughing corporate culture. The first initiates a slow decomposition process. The second makes a company agile, robust and productive. It even survives crises and emerges from them strengthened.

The atmosphere spreads from top to bottom

The key to all of this is how management behaves. Because it is constantly observed how the boss is feeling. His voice, his gestures, his facial expressions: everything is interpreted. Every word, however lightly said, is given weight. When he is in a good mood, the employees feel every interaction: Today is a good day. "Good mood is contagious," says the popular saying. Bad mood, too.

How it works? Mirror neurons are responsible for this. Through them we experience what others feel in a kind of inner simulation. This leads to an emotional “infection”, to spontaneous imitation and often to an unconscious copy of the style and habitus.

We are wired so that we can resonate with those around us. Only a few people are pastors, most of them are aftermaths. And if we are not sure ourselves, we follow the one who makes us feel confident about his cause. And that is the boss, for example. In this way, the conduct of the executive committee is multiplied by its day-to-day work.

    A sentence on the subject of human capital, a word that I myself do not use. My opinion: Whoever calls his employees a service provider or a human capital is dehumanized.

    The company success also depends on good employer branding. If the employer brand is not convincing, the company loses its long-term human capital and also its customers and partners.

    • Edda Cekinmez, TalentGold

      The word "human capital" is not chosen, it is people who are concerned about it. Unfortunately this is often forgotten

    • Thomas Frühwein

      Employer branding is a subset of corporate culture. Human capital ”has also been the“ bad word of the year ”, I don't find it appreciative.
