Organizational Culture: It's More Than A Coat of Paint
Leaders build the culture, live the culture, and reinforce the culture every single day. Leadership has always set the tone within an organization, but today there's growing consensus that a winning, sustainable culture is only achieved when it is 'actively' steeped throughout the entire organization.
Through riveting examples and powerful, relevant stories about innovation, service, value and leadership, Doug pulls back the curtain and reveals the behaviors, tools and attitudes that are representative of cultural excellence at Disney and other great institutions.
