Culture eats strategy?
Play • 35 min

We share our thoughts in this episode about whether culture trumps strategy and how we as leaders can consider this in our work. Strategy is, of course, important, but the culture you create impacts on so many factors, including how effective you are as a leader. 

As always we share our own views, thoughts and experiences:

  • 05:06 – culture isn’t it’s own workstream
  • 07:54 – culture supporting a changing strategy
  • 11:15 – decision making hierarchy
  • 15:00 – redefining the culture in your organisation
  • 20:30 – aligning behaviours and experiences
  • 25.40 – what if you can’t influence the macro culture? 
  • 32:30 – the How to...

We share our top takeaways focused on how we can make culture part of our leadership manifestos. It’s important to demonstrate behaviours and actions that match your culture and move your strategy forward and show accountability in dealing with poor behaviours.
