Putting Yourself “ON THE LINE”

HARNESSING CORPORATE CULTURE to NAVIGATE an ORGANIZATIONAL and a GLOBAL CRISIS


Successful organizations know that organizational culture isn’t just connected to performance; it drives performance. However, a crisis can take its toll on an organization’s culture, particularly when an organization’s very survival is at stake.

Great organizations act like great organizations even when times are tough. They harness the power of corporate culture to successfully navigate a crisis and then emerge stronger in the end.

This presentation will provide practical insights into:

o The power of corporate culture when faced with both organizational crisis and global crisis that threatens company survival

o Getting people on board with culture and making it stick

o The vital connection between accountability and culture during crisis

o How you can put yourself “on the line” and step up to both manage crisis and solve the everyday problems you face
