Have you ever considered the elusive “vibe” in your business? 

You know, that intangible energy that defines your workplace culture. 

What exactly is this ‘vibe’ thing? 

Well, it’s that feeling you sense in a room. It’s the energy that’s palpable even when no one is talking. It’s how your team feels, how they interact, and the unspoken ground rules that are present in the working day.

Imagine your business as a beautiful tree. There’s parts that you can see like the trunk, branches, and leaves. And then beneath the surface are the roots, hidden from view. 

These roots are like the culture of your business. They determine the health and strength of the entire tree… just like culture does for your business.

Now, here’s the kicker: sometimes, what you see on the surface isn’t reflective of what’s happening underneath. But eventually, the truth about the health of those roots will come out. 

Sure, you might see smiles and hear polite greetings, but there might be an underlying defensiveness or sarcasm in the air. 

That’s the vibe talking, and it’s critical for you as the business owner and leader, to pay attention to it!

Think about it like this: you can say all the right things about your business culture, but if your actions don’t align, it’s like planting a tree without nurturing or watering the roots. 

In the long run, it just won’t thrive.

What’s the key to having a kick-ass vibe in your business? 

First, keep your culture alive. Don’t just set and forget your values and vision. Periodically check the pulse of your team and working environment. 

When you ask your team about the vibe and how they feel at work, listen to their feedback (both verbal and non-verbal). And make sure you action the feedback you’re given.

In the words of Simon Sinek, 

“Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion”. 

So, my fellow business trailblazers, nurture that passion and create a thriving business culture that truly reflects your values in the day-to-day workings of your team. 

Your business journey might not always be easy, but when you have the right vibe in your business, it’ll be worth it.
