UNIT 5 INDIVIDUAL PROJECT 2 Organizational Culture Culture is the shared traditions, beliefs, customs, history, folklore, and institutions of a group of people. Culture is shared by people of the same ethnicity, language, nationality, or religion. It's a system of rules that are the base of what we are and affect how we express ourselves as part of a group and as individuals (Brownlee & Lee, n.d.). Organizations also have a culture. Organizational culture is the shared values, principles, traditions and ways of doing things that influence the way organizational members act. It’s the way things are done in an organization and it will differ from job to job. Organizational culture is embedded in the organization’s policies, procedures, and processes and it incorporates certain values, beliefs, assumptions, and customs into the organization (Brownlee & Lee, n.d.). Organizational culture is a key factor in the intervention process and needs to be considered for change initiatives to be successful because there will ultimately need to be a culture change involved (Furgoch, 2016). Leadership has a direct effect on organizations and their success because leaders determine the organization’s values and culture. The way that a manager leads, makes decisions, delegates responsibility and interacts with employees affects the organization and employee motivation and productivity. A manager’s leadership style will have a strong effect on the organizational culture because they set the tone for the way things are done within the organization. Most employees will mirror the actions of their leaders (Quain, 2019). Managing diversity, the ways in which people in an organization are different from and like one another, is extremely important. There are many different types of workplace diversity, such as age, gender, race and ethnicity, disability or ability, religion, GLBT (gay, lesbian,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
