Can you Change your Company Culture?

Can you Change your Company Culture? | Personal Development | Scoop.it

There’s a lot of talk about cultures these days, and for good reason. Culture is the collective values, behaviors and habits displayed by those who work for the organization. While two competitive organizations may have the exact same mission, their cultures can be radically different. An organization’s culture is a large driving force in how decisions are made and why people choose to join or leave a company. But a culture must be nurtured and developed. Unfortunately, sometimes leaders can get so busy that they neglect their culture. Suddenly, the culture isn’t in alignment with what they set out to create. The question is: Can a leader change a company’s culture? The answer: Yes!

How to Write the Perfect First Page

How to Write the Perfect First Page | Personal Development | Scoop.it

Recently I attended a workshop called “American Author” inspired by American Idol. People anonymously submitted the first pages of their novels, which were read aloud to a panel of editors and agents. The panel then provided their immediate, brutally honest feedback for all to hear.

Given my past post on how to write the perfect first page, I thought it was important to add to it by sharing what I learned from hearing the perspective of people who have read hundreds, if not thousands, of first pages.
