Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) June 07, 2011
In his much-awaited book, #CORPORATE CULTURE tweet Book01, S. Chris Edmonds, a highly respected Ken Blanchard senior consultant, starts at the very beginning—by showing us how to recognize an organization's culture and identify whether it is a healthy workplace. Sounds trivial? It surely isn't. An organization that appears healthy and happy may harbor low-productivity, demotivated employees. Conversely an organization that appears to have plateau-d or be driven by only a few personalities may, counter intuitively, boast of stellar performers and consistently upbeat results.
Mr. Edmonds suggests: “Go ahead and poll all the C-level executives you know. Have them name one factor crucial to employee performance. You will hear compensation...workplace flexibility...relationship with manager... health benefits...and so on.” He continued, “And yet, pretty much everybody you poll will agree that if there is a single overriding factor beyond any of these, it is corporate culture. So, we have to ask: Why then do so few corporations deploy the time, resources or deliberation to actually create a positive corporate culture? Why does corporate culture seem to happen almost accidentally, and only occasionally with happy results?”
In his book, Chris shared an important revelation that he learned through his career and business connections, “how you treat your employees and customers tells me more about your values than anything posted on your walls.” Chris uncovers the latent power of 'boss behavior.' Most of us remember our best boss ever, a person who created a work environment that enabled us to perform at our best while being incredibly satisfied with boss, team and work. How do great bosses behave to ensure that organizational culture standards are maintained each day? For sure one factor is what this book calls Unconditional Positive Regard: Act on the belief that your fellow humans are good, mean well, and contribute to your well-being and success.
This is just a sample of the powerful business-focused tweets built with wisdom and insight on what works within corporate cultures and how it can drive success. Written in the actionable tweet format and demonstrating the value that can be delivered in small packages, S. Chris Edmond's #CORPORATE CULTURE tweet will find a home on every progressive corporate leader's bookshelf.
