Culture is the number one challenge facing teams and organisations around the world today. McKinsey found that organisations who wait for cultures to evolve 'organically' will move too slowly and get left behind like Kodak did in the late 1990s. Culture is a daily topic of conversation in every kind of business, in every country throughout the world. From schools to prisons, from start-ups to large corporates and from barber shops to championship winning sports teams Despite this, there is still no 'handbook' for creating team and organisation cultures that are truly unique for their people. Most people simply don't know where to start. It's put into the 'too hard' bucket and activity becomes limited to restructures, office fit outs, off-site meetings, strategy days or changes in personnel. None of these are proven to work and deadlines and opportunities continue to be missed and teams don't live up to the expectations that they've been set. This book will provide the information to solve these culture problems. It will provide a detailed and practical view of what it takes to create great team culture and how to ensure that it stays relevant for the future. It will become the handbook that every CEO will refer to and become required reading for every manager in every kind of business around the world.
