Malcolm blight on the importance of identity and and culture on Sen just now. He stopped short of calling it all a bunch of rubbish but that was clearly what he thought.
He diplomatically said it is overrated. He said fundamentally people within the club want to get a kick and want to win and if they’re doing both things they’ll be happy. He reckons culture is really determined externally and is a perception of what is going on inside. Last year Richmond weren’t seen to have great culture, then they win a flag and everyone thinks their culture is great.
Have to say I couldn’t agree more with this. Corp culture stuff drives me bat ■■■■ crazy. Pay me a fair wage, treat me with a bit of flexibility, respect me and my opinions, treat my colleagues the same way. That’s all it takes and you don’t need to spend 10s of thousands of dollars every year on consultants who ask me bullshit questions and come up with a bunch of meaningless but very colourfull pie charts.
