When a business owner describes his company “like family”, of course, it’s not true, technically.
Technically, you’re all just there for the paycheck. Technically, you can’t fire a family member. Technically, that new hire in Sales doesn’t share your DNA.
But sometimes, still, your work family feels like…well, family.
How does that happen? Feeling united around a cause, knowing you can trust each other, being certain you’re protected — these are the feelings that will bring your team to family-level.
That’s when you’ve got something magical and powerful.
You’ve got a culture.
