Group Culture - the way we do things

Group culture has a large impact on the behaviour, attitudes and satisfaction of each group member. We know that individuals have unique styles but groups also tend to develop their own styles and cultures. 'This culture is an informal combination of behaviours, values and attitudes that most people in the group take for granted.' Group culture has implications for the group as a whole. It affects such things as the pace at which work gets done, how outsiders are treated, the attention paid to details and the risks a group takes. These influence the success of the group in meeting its goals. People who fit into the culture often feel right at home but for some, the culture can make them feel like strangers in a strange land.

Where does group culture come from?

  • The style of the group leaders
  • The most pronounced styles within each group
  • The type of work the group does
  • The historical culture of the group
  • The cohesion or tension within the group
  • The goals and mission of the group
