A Problem Of Yours, Which MFV Could Help To Solve
Ways to Effectively and Sustainably Boost Internal Organizational Culture
Businesses and organizations are always battling fluctuating, unhappy, apathetic, disengaged and distracted employees leading to issues of security, loyalty, retention, and value & quality erosion –all potentially affecting productivity, branding integrity and bottom line vulnerabilities. To mitigate these problems, forward thinking and strategic businesses and organizations try to nurture healthy internal organizational cultures that nurture critical behaviors amongst all their employees and stakeholders. In fact, it really does not matter what the strategic corporate culture orientation is (Market, Adhocracy, Clan or Hierarchy) because without an effective, healthy internal organizational culture, all else can suffer.
A chronic and critical problem in developing these internal organizational cultures is that the most critical skill amongst its members is the least acknowledged, developed and practiced skill. That insight and skill is personal empathy, and it is a unique specialty of Military Family Voices.
Military Family Voices could therefore form an effective transformational business partnership with any business/organization because MFV can uniquely use its practical expertise in facilitating an appreciation for empathy to solve a critical foundational problem/obstacle for building and sustaining effective internal organizational cultures, which could increase, instead of exacerbate, bottom lines. MFV can help a business or organization to work on solving this highly critical problem for potentially all its stakeholders, and in turn, MFV gets an empathetic business and organization upon which to build a supportive relationship.
The Root of the Problem:
Businesses/Organizations have a need to continually improve their own unique internal organizational cultures, with their members’ values, experiences, attitudes, and beliefs, in order to reduce their organizational vulnerabilities to: critical behaviors changing or degrading and radiating out from one employee to another, resulting in increased possibilities of negative, and sometimes irreparable, interactions and impacts on the business or organization stability and profitability. The quality, sustainability and dynamics of this internal organizational culture affects no less than how everyone interacts amongst themselves, and with all stakeholders to which they are exposed.
Every top tier business strategist will set as the virtual foundation of every successful business and organization the paramount need for a sound and supportive internal organizational culture, and that need cannot be overstated.
Ultimately, the breakdown, or ineffective forming in the first place, of an internal organizational culture can chronically diminish the ability, or limit the innovative possibilities, to effectively implement a corporate-wide culture to guide its practices and to achieve specific strategic goals.
Critical, desired behaviors are those that can guide and change other undesirable tendencies and actions by comprehension and not by coercion and can naturally spread throughout the internal organizational culture. These critical behaviors become the habits of an effective internal organizational culture, and they are generally best nurtured when they are consistently and actively managed, supported and clearly open to all the stakeholders, allowing the desired behaviors to spread easily in a practiced, habitual and welcomed manner.
The Fundamental Key Skill
The most fundamental of all the critical behaviors, the underlying basis for tolerance, fairness and integrity, is the key skill of personal empathy. Without that empathy, working on the other desired critical behaviors is an uphill battle with little sustainability and less chance of being able to comprehend interpersonal cause and effect/impact relationships.
MFV Can Help With That Key Skill
Military Family Voices practices insights and methodologies to protect, exercise and build personal empathy. If businesses/organizations form a short and long-term value-driven partnership/relationship with Military Family Voices, MFV could uniquely help them and their people with building or exercising the important empathetic foundation for those critical behavioral issues, by establishing unprecedented practical, recognizable and usable activities and transformational relationships with every individual in that internal organizational culture. In other words, a partner relationship (not a transactional one) with MFV could have a fundamentally positive and sustainable affect on internal organizational cultures and thus on the business/organization bottom line.
Just like the informal leaders already existing in the internal organizational culture, who lead and influence others through the credibility of their own every day example interactions and exemplar behaviors, MFV practices the kind of deep empathy it seeks to nurture in others, and is respected for years of that leadership, practical application and forward thinking.
The Relentless Problem
The internal organizational cultures, at all levels, from the owner, governing body, and the C-level to the field, of any business or organization affects the bottom line productivity, profitability, loyalty, retention and resources in every integrated thing they do, every day. Everyone knows this but the dynamics and relentlessness of the problems within that culture tend toward the path of least resistance and thus to breed an internal tolerance for the existence of a poor internal organizational culture, in various perpetuating dysfunctional states.
Consultants are hired, assessments made, adjustments mandated, training implemented, motivational resources supplied; and yet, the underlying critical element to them all is not adequately recognized, and treated as the ultimate key to a healthy culture. That fundamental, transforming foundational element, critical insight and behavior, is personal empathy, and that is a specialty of Military Family Voices.
In fact, MFV is unique in its ability to help people recognize and experience personal empathy without proselytizing or dictating guidelines. MFV leads by example and the reinforcement of insights and values that come from participation in paying attention to the “other”.
How MFV Exercises, Teaches and Practices This Critical Empathy
MFV’s entire outreach in the voice preservation recordings and their impact on our Military and their Families is based on personal empathy and its ability to drive and sustain good for others. There is a direct cause and effect relationship between what we do and who it fundamentally helps and why. In preserving the voices of Loved Ones, there is a clear understanding of why these recordings help so effectively.
The personal skills of empathy it takes to explore, comprehend and deliver the MFV recording services, and their impacts, transforms those who deliver those services as well as those who receive them. Anyone in direct contact with MFV can learn and practice this fundamentally critical behavior of insight -empathy, by discussing it, by learning it, by helping introduce it to others, by helping with the recordings, by hearing the feedback from those who record and listen, and through a host of other creative and practical exposures led by Military Family Voices.
The Partnership Is The Solution
In a partnership with a business or organization, regardless of your geographic location, MFV can develop a rapport with those internal organizational cultures and have quite an impact on those cultures, if the businesses or organizations want such a solutions.
