Corporate Culture: It Takes More Than Donuts!

  • Larry Peters


This chapter is about embedding People-Centric approaches into the company culture. It is the basis for long-term success, because in a white water world, we need to rely on our people in real time to address the issues and take advantage of the opportunities they encounter. I discuss how one key value needs to be held dear—adaptability. Organizations need to replace slow, numbing, begrudging change, with fast, engaging, and willing change, and this needs to become part of the culture. We cannot expect people to act in ways that support the business unless and until it is “how we do things around here.” This chapter covers two Simple Truths.
