HOW TO BUILD A HIGH-PERFORMANCE CULTURE: THE NO BS WAY TO GET IT DONE
World-class organizations have long recognized the powerful influence their cultures have on the performance of their people, and by extension, the performance of their companies. Not surprisingly, while most organizations allow their cultures to evolve naturally, top-performing ones don’t leave this to chance. Instead, they’re amazingly intentional about how they create and drive the culture they want to have. How they do it is the topic of this program.
This session is a practical, actionable, no nonsense program designed to give participants the tools to leverage their corporate culture as a distinct competitive advantage. As a former award-winning CEO, David Friedman knows firsthand what it takes to build a high-performance culture, and more importantly, he knows the impact it can have on the bottom line. Delivered with his down-to-earth, yet passionate style, and filled with lots of examples from his 27 years of personal leadership experience, David's program covers such topics as:
• The difference between a “good culture” and a “high-performance culture”
• Critical mistakes most leaders make in defining their culture, and how to avoid them
• The role of ritual in sustaining a focus on culture over the long run
Value to Participants:
While the content of this program is thought-provoking, and even inspiring, the real value is in the ability to take the concepts and immediately implement them at work. Most participants will describe this as the most practical and actionable program they’ve ever heard on how to build a high-performance culture; and every participant will leave with a specific game plan to better leverage the power of their own corporate culture.
