Fifteen years ago, author Michael Lee Stallard worked in Wall Street where he observed the cultures of merging organizations didn’t mesh, and the differences sabotaged post-merger performance.
Stallard wanted to do something about it so he left the Street and conducted research to better understand organizational culture.
To his surprise, despite the common view, Stallard found there is a “best” type of culture when it comes to helping an organization thrive, especially during times of change, when strategies are evolving and attracting, engaging and retaining talent is essential to achieve sustainable superior performance.
He named this fine culture a “Connection Culture” and contrasted it with cultures of control and indifference that isolate people.
Stallard is set to team up with HCI on Nov. 20 at 1 p.m. for the fourth #StorytellingTuesday webcast, during which you can get Stallard’s latest report on a Connection Culture, including how people analytics and workforce planning, together, are instrumental to achieving the human connection that is essential for both individuals and organizations to thrive, no matter what comes their way.
