You´re probably familiar with the expression “Culture eats strategy for breakfast”. But, how to do something about it?
About the book
This book gives not only insights into values-based leadership and how it enhances organizational performance. It also provides concrete tools and techniques for how to get there.
This combination makes it a powerful tool for anyone eager to expand their thinking – and practice – of values-based leadership.
Why we like it
We like “The Values-Driven Organization” because it:
- explains the direct link between employee engagement and business results
- gives access to concrete tools and techniques such as model for whole system change, mapping leadership values, six modes of decision making, and practices for embedding the culture – to mention some
- is based on profound research and packed with references. Barrett uses strong case studies to explain and highlight his thinking
- is easy to read, with a clear and precise language and lots of diagrams and figures. Each chapter ends with a conclusion and summary of key points
The strongest asset of this book is perhaps the combination of profound and precise conceptual thinking, and a strong tool-kit for implementation of cultural change.
“The Values-Driven Organization” addresses anyone who needs a framework of tools and clear thinking on how to manage the soft concept of culture.
