What does the research and science say? Consistently the latest research on high-performing organizations, shows that a leader's highest and best use of time, effort and action is in building and linking business strategy to an optimistic, inclusive, "high-development" work culture.
"Culture beats strategy."
"Culture limits and determines strategy."
"Culture eats strategy for breakfast."
"Even teams that are high-functioning but work in silos will defeat new business goals AND your best leader efforts."
~attributed to Edgar Schein, Peter Drucker, and other leaders (Kim MacDonald:)) at different times and places.
“These quotes should be painted on the inner offices of every innovative and entrepreneurial leader, regardless of sector. The fact is, we have all seen it, we have all felt it. We know when culture and strategy are working together and when they aren't."
~Owner and strategic leader, Kim MacDonald.
