Does YOUR organization have personality?

Personality can be defined as a dynamic and organized set of characteristics possessed by a person that uniquely influences his or her cognitions, motivations, and behaviors in various situations – Wikipedia

Yesterday, Pyxis Technologies celebrated its 10th anniversary, launched a new web site, released 2 video clips (How do you explain Agile approaches in 1 minutes? and Software development according to Pyxis) and threw a great party.

Over 200 guests attended the celebration. Many of the people I had a chance to speak with during the evening told me they really noticed the personality of our organization – some of which even asked if we would hire them. François has done an amazing job at attracting passionate individuals who share a common goal and that truly reflects a Pyxis personality.

Does YOUR organization have a personality?

  1. 1) You need to have someone who is a strategist or visionary, who sets the goals for where the organization needs to go.

    2)You need to have somebody who is the classic manager. That person takes care of the organization in terms of making sure that everyone knows what they need to do and making sure that tasks are broken up into manageable, measurable actions.

    3)You need a champion for the customer, because you are trying to translate your product into something that customers are going to pay for. It’s important to have somebody who empathizes and understands how customers will see it.

    4)Then, lastly, you need the enforcer. You need somebody who says: “We’ve stared at this issue long enough. We’re not going to stare at it anymore. We’re going to do something about it. We’re going to make a decision. We’re going to deal with whatever conflict we have.”
