Forbes Magazine – Creating a Sustainable Culture to Drive Company Performance

With businesses increasingly realizing how company culture can directly impact and ultimately drive revenues and performance, many companies are embracing the importance of fostering trust and transparency throughout an organization.

The ability to stop and take a hard look in the mirror; 2. The ability to include all stakeholders in the conversation; 3. The ability to let go of the existing behaviors and practices that are no longer serving the organization’s success.
