Management consultant and educator Peter Drucker famously stated that “culture eats strategy for breakfast.” If organizational culture discourages innovation, it will be difficult to implement change.
As you work tirelessly to align mission, vision, strategy, goals, and objectives, do you find his statement to be frustratingly true? Do you find that you implement a strategy only to see it “eaten up” by a lack of buy-in, enthusiasm, or support?
You are not alone.
Creating an organizational culture that embraces a learning dynamic, adapts to organizational change, and welcomes transformative goals helps take your organization to next-level exceptionalism.
Think of strategy and culture as two sides of the same coin and approach organizational goals with both frames in mind. When strategy and culture are aligned, the benefit to your organization is limitless.
