A new survey shows that when executives fail to focus on culture, their change initiatives founder.
...it is easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than it is to think your way into a new way of acting.
Excerpted: ....those who work with and within their existing culture to change critical behaviors have more success than those who try to change their culture.
Said another way, it is easier to act your way into a new way of thinking than it is to think your way into a new way of acting.
....Overall, change initiatives are only adopted and sustained about half the time, our survey shows. But when companies tap into the energy and emotional commitment that are bound up in their cultures, change initiatives are far more sustainable.
