It’s something I seldom find in many organizations. While many companies focus on increasing communication between employees and/or building the right kind of culture to maintain a proper atmosphere, many seem to fail. Even with the many books that have been written on communication and culture building, I see people struggling to “get it right”. Most individuals are simply confused as to what culture is!
In many of the situations we get involved in we are required to change the current environment where attitudes, systems, and people have lost the earlier culture of entrepreneurialism and are now lost in a larger more complex organization, or worse, the company is in a free fall.
