Building Culture
If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the people to collect wood, divide the work, and
give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.- Antoine De Saint-

transparency, risk mastery

When we work on transforming the leadership in an organization, we are in essence
changing the culture of the organization. As the impact of the leader’s changed behaviour
cascades down, it sends a clear message of what people down the line can expect going
forward. The new values and beliefs will kick in and shape the behaviours, symbols, and
systems which drive the new culture.
