View Video Introduction

This course is based on the premise that organizational culture, and the leadership of it, is significantly misunderstood and under-leveraged. The intent is to bring more clarity, context, relevance and understanding to the topic and, in effect, “demystify it,” such that leaders can appropriately use it as the powerful tool it can be in leading and creating a sustainable high performance organization. The essential challenge and call on leadership is to keep organizational culture aligned, defined, deep and fluid, given an increasingly dynamic climate.

Additionally, as future graduates, you will become more aware of the importance of finding the correct “fit” between you and the organizations you choose to consider to join as your career progresses. Simply speaking, the better the “fit”…. the better the prospect for organizational and individual success.
