Culture is the Shadow of the Leader: Are You Casting a Strategic Shadow
or Standing in the Shadows?
Culture defines how work gets done in an organization. Strategy defines the work the organization wants to get done, and leaders’ behaviors and actions set the cultural tone. The shadow leaders cast influences the behaviors and actions of everyone they lead. Leaders who think strategically are deliberate about three things: the direction in which they want to take the business, the culture that will support that direction, and the behaviors they must adopt to create the desired culture. When these three are aligned, the organization outperforms its competitors. In this interactive session, we’ll focus on culture and leadership from a strategic perspective. We’ll learn how to define our desired culture using a research-based and time-tested business model. And we’ll work together in teams identifying the key leadership behaviors to enable the desired culture.
