Culture Archetypes: Achievement Culture

Axialent

Andy Friere, Co-founder and CEO of Axialent, describes the achievement culture archetype, one of the five basic cultural archetypes into which organizations fall: 1) Achievement, 2) Innovation, 3) One-team, 4) People-first or 5) Customer-focused. Specifically, Friere suggests that achievement cultures focus on measuring and awarding performance outcomes. Friere describes the behaviors, symbols and processes that build this type of culture as well as the actions that destroy it.
