As the CEO of Logic20/20, a business consulting firm in Seattle, Christian O’Meara strives to create an atmosphere of integrity and achievement. To accomplish this goal, Christian O’Meara promotes a “culture of we.” Here are some elements of the we culture:
Hiring outstanding employees and treating them well is essential. Companies grow when smart people accept challenges and solve them as a team, acquiring new skills and being given opportunities to lead new ventures.
Teamwork is vital. In a culture of we, the players work together without falling into the pitfalls of looking out for number one, which only adds unnecessary stress. When the teams wins, everybody wins. Helping other team members builds a strong group. In a cooperative environment, every employee should have a mentor and pass on their wisdom to someone else.
Peer recognition is also crucial. Being recognized by your teammates feels good and is sometimes rewarded with raises and promotions. Such honors remind everyone that all employees contribute to corporate success.
To promote unity, Logic20/20 has a social committee that gives people a chance to have fun outside of work by joining company soccer, basketball, or softball teams. For those interested in other types of recreation, video games, Scrabble, and even Lego blocks are available.
Finally, community involvement enhances the lives of both givers and receivers. Time spent volunteering is billable and Logic20/20 frequently reaches out to serve the needs of others.
