Research Center: 6 Steps for Sabotaging Your Organizations Culture Renovation

We were thrilled last month with the fantastic turnout for our Culture Renovation – A Blueprint for Action webinar, delivered in partnership with i4cp – The Institute for Corporate Productivity.  Keeping this research top of mind, this article restates the factors that define a healthy organizational culture and how to fail at culture change. Yes, how organizations fail. Read the research results that will surely sabotage your culture change initiatives. In short, this i4cp blog, based on their extensive research states “do this not that”.
