thoughts on corporate culture
Anyway, I saw a post today on Seth Godin’s blog that made me start to think (God, I feel like Carrie Bradshaw) about corporate culture. Here’s the link.  He talks about being careful who you work for and how no one teaches you how to choose a job, but they teach you how to  get a job. Getting a job’s the (relatively) easy part. Knowing it’s the right one doesn’t really come until you start and settle in a little bit. Godin says that if you work for a bully, be prepared to be bullied; if you work for a narcissist, be prepared to brownnose and not learn how to lead for yourself. Interesting? Yes. ... market research, surveys and trends

A Corporate Culture Effects Change; Benefits to America's Inner ...
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. -- It wasn't the beginning of a typical Brooks Brothers-infused business trip when Tom Michaelis, Sales Vice President for Unilever, boarded a jet bound for West Palm Beach. It wasn't a sales call or an industry meeting, it was a mission to "get into the skin" of another person and allow the immersion to "open your eyes as to how others live." The result -- personal and professional growth, greater understanding for the world and the marketplace you do business in and a commitment to make a difference. All said, an eye-opening, life-changing experience. It wasn't just a directive from their ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Success in strategic speed
The early bird catches the worm” is probably one of the more popular idioms, and one that is often applied to business. It is well accepted that success in business favours the swift – companies that are able to create the most value are smarter and faster than the competition. However, it might come as a surprise to many that despite ample resources, fancy graphs and streamlined processes in place, often the biggest problem is implementing a strategic initiative on time. Why is this the case? President and CEO of Forum Corp, Edwin H. Boswell, has a theory. He argues that many companies focus exclusively on pace and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The Good News: Mad Men Season 4, Episode 3 (Commentary)
The good news this week is that Mad Men returns to form with a rich and entertaining episode layered with meaning even in the seemingly throwaway asides. Three major characters struggle with bad news – Don learning that Anna Draper has terminal cancer, Lane finding out his wife wants to end their marriage and Joan worrying about Greg being sent to Vietnam – but joy still finds its way in, as each connects with a person who reminds them not of the preciousness of life (that would be, well, too precious for this show) but rather the absurd pleasure to be found in simply living, especially in mid-twentieth century ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What is important for long- term organizational success may not be a particular type of organizational culture per se but the ability to effectively manage and change the culture over time to adjust to changes in the situation and needs of the organization. This understanding has pointed to the need for a more dynamic understanding of culture and the role of organizational leaders in ensuring that the culture contributes both to the organization�s current and future success. Leadership today is essentially the creation, the management, and at times the destruction and reconstruction of culture. In fact,�the only thing of importance
