Creating Organizational Culture - David DeWolf

Creating Organizational Culture

I have an ongoing debate with a good friend who is also a mentor and seasoned executive who I respect quite a bit. This debate is about organizational culture.

His hypothesis is that you cannot create or build organizational culture. He maintains that it just happens organically from the makeup of the people within the organization.

I believe, on the other hand, that you can shape organizational culture, that you can create and build a culture very deliberately. Here’s how.

Humble Confidence: Get Through the Challenges

Humble Confidence Gets You Through Challenges

Humble confidence will get you through the inevitable challenges you’ll face, both in business and in life.

What’s Your Bowl of Rice? Understanding What Sets Off Your Anger

Imagine this. You’re in a restaurant and having a great time with a group of friends.  The waiter comes to deliver your meal, and, gently places a bowl of white rice in front of a friend. The friend, who has just returned from a long trip, explodes. He berates the waiter and becomes belligerent, angry, and almost violent.

Unless you knew the backstory.
