Essential Tools for Challenging Times - Neil Ihde

Neil Ihde
Every organization faces challenges. Sometimes they are known, but other times they come out of left field. 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.
