Fast Company published an article with the title, Culture Eats Strategy For Lunch, on January 24th, 2012. The article was written by FC Expert Blogger Shawn Parr. You can read the whole article here.
Gino Wickman, the founder of EOS Worldwide sent the article around to we EOS Implementers. He said the article is a must read from two standpoints. The headline is spot on with the EOS philosophy and it is exactly what EOS Implementers do for companies.
Parr summarizes what he thinks it takes to build great cultures, like those at Apple, Southwest Airlines, Zappos, Virgin, WholeFoods and Stoneybrook Farms.
Four very basic building blocks he calls out are:
- Dynamic and engaged leadership
- Living values
- Responsibility and accountability
- Celebrate success and failure.
We couldn’t agree more. If you’d like to talk about how we help companies accomplish these things, let me know.
