What lessons can organisational culture take from nature? :: Guardian

This isn’t the first time that I have highlighted articles or gone on about the need for us to learn “lessons from nature” and to apply them to our business organisations. Ecological and biological systems are self-organising and interdependent…they are equipped to thrive and to survive.
For organisations to thrive in increasingly dynamic business environments, they need to connect, collaborate and synergise within diverse systems. Organisational culture provides the foundation for collaborative stakeholder engagement. Just like healthy soil, a healthy organisational culture is rich in diversity and nutrients. Organisational vision and leadership can bring unity within this diversity and a sense of direction which empowers teams to adapt to the rapidly changing business environment.
