Trust is the Underlying Element for a Successful Culture
Have you ever wondered what you need to build a real culture of innovation? I'm not talking about ping pong tables and trust falls. I’m talking at the base level or culture. The invisible glue that makes it happen. Well, thanks to our guest Yoram Solomon, it’s not so invisible to us anymore. In fact, it’s quite tangible.
It's been said that "Culture eats strategy for breakfast." It's an effective statement, if you can understand where it's coming from. But what does it mean for culture to consume strategy? That's the question on this week's episode of Power Up with NSA North Texas when Betti sits down with Yoram Solomon to get to the bottom of culture strategy and hear his formula for building trust in any team.
Why don’t we typically find the fresh, exciting, and innovative culture of startups in larger corporations? “Creativity Doctor” Yoram Solomon has identified the major innovation- and productivity-killers in America’s corporate culture, and offers solutions that could make large corporations out-innovate even startups. In episode 72 of The TalentGrow Show, I chat with Yoram about culture, what he thinks both employees and management can do to take control of it, and what practices (including his “trust formula”) can help promote creativity in the workplace. Plus, find out why Yoram thinks political correctness is actually killing innovation!
Yoram’s story is so fascinating that we had to book him again! Learn even more about this fascinating man’s life and all he has done. Learn how piloting a plane makes him hyper focused afterwards, about the three items you need to build interest in people and ideas and a myriad of others gems.
What is the right way to plan a business strategy? Oddly, it is no different than using a GPS navigation system in your car. In this episode you will accompany our guest, a Vice President of Corporate Strategy through his recent five-year journey since joining a 34 year old public technology company in 2008 to its transformation in 2013.
