When managers are uncertain about their business environments, the vision helps guide the discussions, decisions, and behaviour of the people in the company. Organizational culture are an important source of stability and continuity to the organization, which provide a sense of security to its members. Knowledge of the organizational culture helps newer employees interpret what goes on inside the organization, by providing an important context for events that would otherwise seem confusing. Culture helps to stimulate employee enthusiasm for their tasks by recognizing and rewarding high- producing and creative individuals, there by identifying them as role models to emulate.

Set Expectations and help people build the required skills Most people want to improve their professional skill set and make a difference. To do this, we need to provide them with the tools, resources, and opportunities that allow them to grow and gain confidence in their ability to meet expectations. Reinforce a culture of accountability Accountability is one of the most important ways for leaders to influence culture. When leaders hold people accountable it helps people understand that they are accountable in all things they do. Without accountability measures in place, a leader’s influence and word will fall on deaf ears. Your team needs to see that the way in which you do business, internal processes and systems, and cultural elements are in place for a reason. Make it personal for your team we can have even more influence on culture and performance if you make it personal. Making changes and establishing a desired culture will challenge people,and they will be resistant unless you connect with them emotionally and rationally. 12.How does culture, economics and politics affects managerial performance Ans : Organizations provide a power base for individuals. From a purely economic standpoint, organizations exist to create a surplus of income over costs by meeting needs in the marketplace. But organizations also are political structures which provide opportunities for people to develop careers and therefore provide platforms for the expression of individual interests and motives. The development of careers, particularly at high managerial and professional levels, depends on accumulation of power as the vehicle for transforming individual interests into activities which influence other people.

    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.
