A Roadmap for Leadership and Cultural Transformation

Throughout today’s rapidly changing business world, top CEOs face two primary challenges: solving the leadership gap and creating a sustainable corporate culture.

However, more and more business leaders are beginning to recognize the necessity of culture when it comes to creating and sustaining long-term growth and change. What is the key to creating a strong business culture? Leadership. The best cultures start with CEOs who set the tone for the rest of the company, guiding others through the often difficult process of corporate transformation
