Some say culture eats strategy for breakfast. Some say it’s lunch. So, what is it? Strategy or culture? Breakfast or lunch?
No matter what it is, I say your organizational culture and strategy rely on the how. Many organizations know the whats. They have goals and metrics. They have strategies and tactics. They even have stuff on walls that say what they aspire to achieve and who they serve. Yet they struggle.
No matter how great the whats, it’s how leaders and teams put the whats in place. It's how they execute the whats.

There are many validated approaches to improve leadership and team function. I am a firm believer that the work of leaders and their teams should be the focus, especially during a time-critical project. The work is the team-building exercise.

Make it stick
Lastly, my goal is to make lasting change that will sustain performance and change that will translate into other work. In the end, it’s about helping people who care for people
