Presentation: High performance: culturally strategic or strategically cultural?

The generation of high performance in a business is complex.  In rapidly changing ecosystems, leaders have to continuously be prepared to shift gears to stay relevant and generate high performance.  The other possibility is to be disrupted and become irrelevant.  In this session we will review the way that strategy and culture intersect, and in particular:

  • How culture and strategy set the context for high performance
  • The reasons roadblocks emerge to performance in a business
  • The danger signs and the levers a leader can use to keep a business on a high performance path
  • Why culture and strategy may not be enough
  • How a system-level view can change the capacity of your business to perform.
