Culture Trumps Everything
In this participant-driven program, Dr. Gustavo will provide participants with actionable information regarding:
- Understanding the profit paradox, classic capitalism vs. social capitalism and their implications
- A clear definition of organizational culture
- Examples of the successes and failures created by organizational culture
- Steps for Creating a Culture of Success: Identifying the six culture components which predict success in organizations
Value to Participants: Participants will leave with specific action plans outlining what steps are required, strategically and tactically, to implement their “culture factors” as well as individual steps to maximize employee performance. These steps will be outlined for each member in a readily accessible format such that participants can refer to their plan on a daily and weekly basis.
Dr. Gustavo’s book Culture Trumps Everything investigates the powerful ways in which a variety of factors, to include behavioral norms, alternative corporate models, habit patterns, connectedness, trust, language, and time perspective, impact the creation of “quintessence” in organizations. It is this quintessence – or lack thereof – that ultimately determines the success and sustainability of organizations. As leaders, we get the organizations we deserve, as a direct result of the cultures we nourish (or neglect). If we want to ensure the best possible outcomes for ourselves and our organizations, we must focus on developing the cultures that foster success for all stakeholders, because… culture trumps everything.
