To Change the Culture, Change the Stories

“If you want to change the culture, you have to change the stories,” says Peter Bregman in a recent blog post for Harvard Business Review. As Bregman points out, corporate culture reflects the values of the people running an organization, and the culture has a significant impact on talent management and corporate success.

He asserts that when the CEO values input from all levels, employees are encouraged to strive for the company’s success. Honest, direct employee input requires the CEO to face the truth contained in the stories employees tell–and to be willing to do something about them. Is that happening in the company where you work? How is that culture different from others you’re familiar with?
