CULTURE BOOKS OVERVIEW

The Hardest Work You'll Do

It’s scary to think about the amount of time wasted on culture change. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a crucial activity.

The problem is that many leaders approach culture change in the wrong way.

โ€‹

You might have seen this story play out.

โ€‹

It’s the annual “culture” day for the leadership team. After a few “trust falls” and fun games the team get down to business. “Our culture isn’t working, let's brainstorm our company values.” A few hours later “Trust, Honesty, Collaboration, Fun, Respect”. “Let’s present these at the next company-wide meeting. And don’t forget to print our values onto the company stationary.”

โ€‹

It’s an oversimplification but a common reality.

โ€‹

When changing culture, it’s easy to focus on the wrong things. Leaders assume that values are important. Which they are. But you don’t start there.

โ€‹

These culture books will help you avoid the same mistakes. You'll finally build a culture to be proud of. One where everyone can do the best, most meaningful work.
