Young organizations tend to have clear cultures and good-enough workflow practices. These things tend to sprout from the founders and early hires. As these organizations scale into hyper-growth companies, chaos and confusion often ensue. Cultures become unconscious and contradictory and workflow practices descend into endless fire drills.
Hyper-growth organizations that sustain through scale create conscious cultures that align essence with operations and address excesses and blind spots on a regular basis. These efforts require both collective conversations and individual support. Regular all-hands meetings about culture allow for course corrections and targeted individual coaching delivers just-in-time skills for leaders.
