    Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast!

    in Business

    One of my favorite quotes from Peter Drucker is "culture eats strategy for breakfast every time"! Most people think the key to their businesses success is their strategy. The fact is the key to the success of any organization is the culture. There is a sequence that makes the difference in creating long pasting success and it starts with what I call championship psychology. Championship psychology represents culture. It is the first blade on your productivity windmill. How you manage these drivers as an individual or as a group will determine your success with creating winning strategies and sustainable result. It is my experience that culture can be broken down into 4 components that apply to you and your team. To understand more about my perspective pick up a copy of my book the productivity zone. Today we are going to learn the following



    Why organizational culture is a strategic and financial issue, not an HR topic.
    How culture develops and what you can do to take more control.
    Why behavior matters more than values.

    Organization is both mental and physical

    in Business

    Organization isn’t just blocking out the clutter in your workspace but also blocking out the clutter in your mental state.  All too often we are quick to grab a tool, filing system or look for some quick fix. We don’t take enough thinking time to organize our thoughts and gain clarity around what drives us mentally so we can set up our environment to support that.


    Todays takeaways will be 5 steps of organizing any space.
