How to improve company culture? PRACTICE BLAMELESS PROBLEM-SOLVING. When mistakes happen, it’s easy to point fingers. But by doing that, we lose sight of the solution. It’s more important to acknowledge the mistake, learn from it and move on. That’s what David Hodges, systems engineer, is sharing today.


Welcome to iVenture’s Weekly Culture Workshop. Each lesson teaches you how to embrace positive work culture beyond the employee handbook. You’ll learn what traits to encourage and how you can improve your own company culture.

How To Improve Company Culture: Practice Blameless Problem Solving

When there’s a problem, the impulse reaction is to ask, “Who caused the problem?” instead of “What caused the problem?”. David doesn’t work this way.

Instead, he jumps right to solution finding. There’s no time to waste with the blame game. The ultimate goal is always fixing the problem.

The Key Takeaway

Placing blame is counterproductive. It puts people on the defensive instead of focusing on solutions. Mistakes should be viewed as a learning and teaching opportunity. After all, we’re all human.

Actions To Take

  • Concentrate on fixing the problem or issue
  • After fixing the problem, find the root cause
  • Address any training opportunities to avoid future mistakes
