Have you experienced a leaking roof in a storm? You don’t know there’s a problem until it is too precarious to be out there in the rain fixing it.
Culture and talent can be seen in a similar light – when the business
is doing well, it’s easy to ignore a less-than-ideal culture and a
weak talent management strategy. But when results start to suffer, it is
often too late to overcome the roadblocks.
Drucker’s statement that “culture eats strategy for breakfast” is getting more and more airplay in social media channels lately it would seem. We at ACHIEVEBLUE™ would hardly argue this point and have been proponents of the importance of achievement-oriented cultures for quite some time. Recent research from author Dr. Linda Sharkey PhD presented in her book, Optimizing Talent, has demonstrated that a supportive culture can yield a 10% improvement in business results against other measures such as performance management systems.
When we work to optimize our talent base, culture is something we can’t ignore. But that doesn’t mean it is easy to address.
Join us on March 27, 2012 to explore the challenges and more importantly,
practical ideas to overcome the roadblocks to culture and talent
This innovative blend of panel discussion, breakout brainstorms led by our experts and active networking will prove a great opportunity to learn, share and develop relationships that can provide support as you continue on the culture and talent journey.
Learn from our expert panel as they share their experiences – both challenges and success stories around getting buy-in from senior leadership and getting long term return on the financial and time investments made across the organization. Our panel will include:
