Why you should read Change the Culture, Change the Game
In this new, revised version of their 2002 book, Journeys to the Emerald City, management consultants Roger Connors and Tom Smith offer wisdom, anecdotes and facts to help you modify your organizational culture for positive business results. The authors discuss change, culture, and people by providing three-step programs, five-principle approaches, three-level matrices, and a pyramid. The authors employ multiple models because they address elements of the workplace that are as intangible as they are important. As Connors and Smith are fond of saying, “Either you will manage the culture, or it will manage you.” This is proven true even though formulas and jargon occasionally muffle their sound methods and useful message. getAbstract recommends this book to CEOs, executives, human resources professionals, parents and anyone running a team who wants better results.

September 28, 2011 Yessenia BatistaGreat practical advise for anyone who wants to bring a cultural change to their business environment or personal lives to ultimately provide positive results. I agree with the actions they recommend that will lead to those desired results. For example, avoiding to manage by dictate - if you want genuine change and not a series of actions that people check off to please you. Has anyone applied these principles and obtained these results? "Remember, culture changes one person at a time, and the effort to change people's beliefs is worth it."
