Time for a New Leader in the C-Suite? - Forbes

Time for a New Leader in the C-Suite? - Forbes | Leading Choices | Scoop.it

Interesting thoughts. Having a solid company culture is essential, but does it need a Chief Culture Officer or just good leadership? Great points to consider here:

 

"So is it time for you to create the post of Chief Culture Officer? Emphatic Yes. Do you want your business to survive the next wave of broken and shallow business models? Do you understand that value has multiple meanings? Do you want to build a real business, not a flip-out? Then do it. Get an extra chair for the C-Suite and surround it with a gracious and comfortable space. Make sure there’s another comfortable chair across the desk, too. You’ll spend some time in that one.

 

Is it time to hire a Chief Culture Officer? Or at least dream about the possibilities?"

Happy Leadership Interdependence!

Happy Leadership Interdependence! | Leading Choices | Scoop.it

A leader without integrity is an independent, soulless one. Integrity without leaders is just a concept.

For integrity to come alive, leaders need to embrace it. For leaders to lead effectively, integrity needs to be upheld. More than the relationship between leader and integrity is the need for both to be demonstrated actively in our teams, organizations, communities, and families.
