“You don’t create culture. It happens. This is why new companies don’t have culture. Culture is the byproduct of consistent behavior…. Culture isn’t a foosball table or trust falls. It isn’t policy. It isn’t the Christmas party or the company picnic. Those are objects and events, not culture. Culture is action, not words…You can’t install a culture. Like a fine scotch, you’ve got to give it time to develop”. –  From the chapter “Culture”.
