Sustaining Your Culture For Years, Not Months
What's A Ritual?
A "ritual" is some pattern of behavior that we do over and over again until it becomes virtually automatic. It becomes "just the way we do things." A habit is another word for ritual in this context. A ritual can be anything from the morning routine we have for brushing our teeth to the way we drive to work each day to the national anthem being played before the start of every professional sporting event.
