Purpose – This paper argues that when managing strategically it is important for leaders to consider how to work with the group's culture.

Design/methodology/approach – Discusses and gives examples to illustrate how one can determine the nature of a group's culture.

Findings – In advancing the library's issues, it is helpful for library directors to determine whether or not the organization's culture will assist the tactics proposed to implement a new plan.

Practical implications – This provides concepts to be considered when a leader attempts to move forward a library's priorities.

Originality/value – Hopefully, this article will motivate librarians to think about the library's culture when working to advance their library's interests.
