Culture Eats Strategy for Lunch
Culture can be the single most important competitive advantage or it can literally have our strategy for lunch. Learn how to assess the risk level within your organization and what to do about it.
First, Break All The Rules
Curt Coffman expose the fallacies of standard management thinking in First, Break All the Rules, What the World's Greatest Managers Do Differently. Curt debunk some dearly held notions about management, such as "treat people as you like to be treated" "people are capable of almost anything"; and "manager's role is diminishing in today's economy."
Follow This Path
What do the world's greatest organizations have in common? They know that their most valuable resource is human-their employees and customers. And the best companies understand two important facts: people are emotional first and rational second, and because of that, employees and customers must be emotionally engaged in order for the organization to reach its full potential. Research not only bears that out, but has uncovered the secrets of creating and managing an "emotional economy" that will provide boom possibilities for your company.
