Organizations go through cycles. There are season of success and enthusiasm and then there can be season of challenges and overreactions. It is amazing (and a bit frightening!) how quickly a bright, positive, successful culture can turn toxic when an organization experiences setbacks, market changes, regulatory changes, and organizational restructuring. (If you have gone through this, you know the accuracy of that statement.) During these challenging periods leaders and organizations need effective tools to strategize, energize, and focus the culture on solutions. These tools include emphasizing one’s identity, vision, values, and history. Change management, transparency, and authentic communication are critical. Throw in some timely decision-making skills and a healthy dose of moxie and resilience, and this period challenges soon becomes another successful chapter in your company’s narrative.
