The Sixth Sense of Company Culture

“I see people, they don’t know they are dead” – Cole Sear

You may know Cole Sear, the young boy from the movie “The Sixth Sense”. He saw and spoke with dead people, most of them angry, sad or lethargic. They all didn’t realized, that they are dead. They ignored all signs and tried to life on.

You can see the same in dead companies, too. A company is dead, if the employees cannot trust the management. The employees act like the dead people from the film, angry and lethargic. The business goes on, but there is bad mood on the floors, productivity and innovations down. They have a company culture, which is written down in the coporate identity brochure, but nobody tries to live it.
