Here are three top-of-mind things that he taught me (from among the many I could mention):

MIT's Ed Schein on Why Corporate Culture Is No Longer the Relevant Topic and What Is - Forbes

MIT's Ed Schein on Why Corporate Culture Is No Longer the Relevant Topic and What Is - Forbes | Create Positive Change | Scoop.it

" To help leaders deal with multi-cultural teams, which is where it’s going to be at, two things need to happen – leaders have to become much more humble and learn how to seek help, because the subordinates under them will be much more knowledgeable than they, and secondly leaders will have to create cultural islands where people from differently occupational and national cultures can spend suspend some of the rules and talk to each other more directly, for example, about how they view trust, how they view authority, or how they deal with bosses that make mistakes.

If leaders can’t create those kinds of cultural islands, they won’t be able to create teams that can actually work."
