This week, the Friday Link Around takes on a slightly different focus – we explore what “culture” means to leaders. Leading organizations both large and small demand the creation of a cohesive culture of shared ideas and values. For startups, the transformation from “five guys in a garage” to a staff of dozens of employees with titles, HR policies, and the like requires leaders to create and maintain an organizational culture deliberately. I’ve written about culture many times on Leading Leaders, and below are the “Top Five” posts about culture for your reading pleasure.
Do you have any tips on creating and maintaining culture in your organization? Tell me about them in the comments below!
