Engaging Leaders To Change Organizational Culture – Barriers And Strategies

In an ideal world, leaders fully embrace the challenge of changing culture. Unfortunately, this rarely happens in reality. What are the barriers facing leaders and what strategies can they adopt?

New York, United States - March 22, 2019 /PressCable/ —

Dr. Nancie Evans, co-founder of Culture Strategy Fit Inc. has recently published a new article on the topic of changing corporate culture and the role leaders need to adopt in order to facilitate this change and make it a success. The article outlines several barriers that prevent leaders from taking the necessary action to achieve a culture shift such as dealing with competing priorities and demands and the mistaken belief that culture is HR’s job. The article also outlines several possible solutions for better leader engagement by asking them what doesn’t work, learning to speak their language and translating their role as a leader into tangible actions.

Dr. Nancie Evans comment, “In an ideal world, senior leaders fully embrace the challenge of changing culture. This means role modeling the expected behaviors, reinforcing them in day-to-day practices, and creating the conditions for success. Unfortunately, I’ve found this rarely happens in reality. It isn’t that leaders don’t understand what it takes to be successful. When asked for examples from their experience, leaders can almost always come up with great stories of both successful and failed efforts. They totally get that they need to lead the way.”

The article provides an anecdote of a CEO of a transportation company and the process of engaging the leader, the questions that were asked. In the end of the process, the CEO began to understand that if the company was to be a well-oiled machine, the organization needed to strengthen the foundation and company culture.

Dr. Evans adds, “I invite leaders and CEO’s to read the article on our website and reflect on how they can play an instrumental role in changing or strengthening their corporate culture. I challenge them to ask some of the tough questions outlined in the article. What answers do they come up with?”

Turkey's Erdogan witness in footballer Mesut Ozil's wedding

Jun 17, 2019

ISTANBUL — Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was in the wedding party as Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil tied the knot on Friday. State-run Anadolu news agency said Erdogan and his wife, Emine, were legal witnesses for Ozil, who married model, actress and former Miss Turkey Amine Gulse in Istanbul.

Libyan commander hands over prominent militant to Egypt

Jun 17, 2019

CAIRO — A prominent Egyptian militant wanted for scores of terror attacks in his country was handed over to Egypt on Wednesday by Libyan forces loyal to a commander pushing to take the capital of Tripoli and flown to Cairo.

El-Ashmawi was captured last October in the Libyan city of Derna, a longtime bastion of Islamic militants, by commander Khalifa Hifter's self-styled Libyan National Army. Hifter's forces now are battling to take Tripoli, fighting...

Jun 17, 2019

CAIRO — The U.N. mission in Libya says two local TV reporters detained by forces loyal to a commander who is on the offensive to capture the country's capital, Tripoli, have been released after three weeks in captivity. Libya's Alahrar TV station said commander Khalifa Hifter's self-styled Libyan National Army detained two of its journalists, Mohamed al-Qarg and Mohamed al-Shibani, earlier this month.
