It is said that bad culture will beat a good person every time. Conversely one of my favourite proverbs is, “as iron sharpens iron, so is a man the countenance of his friends.” In short you come to reflect the culture and people around you. Being around people with depth and passion helps you make…
One more quote I love:
“The culture of any organization is shaped by the worst behavior the leader [at any level] is willing to tolerate.” Gruenter & Whitaker
Finally got time to sit down and digest, what a great read. “People don’t quite jobs, they quit managers.” We all own the culture we create, and the quickest way to wash out talent is to create a toxic culture.
Which is why you need to change or leave a culture that doesn’t match!
