Learning Objectives

Culture is the character and personality of your organization. It's what makes your business unique and is the sum of its values, traditions, beliefs, interactions, behaviors, and attitudes. You do not build positive culture by providing free snacks to your employees, or by having gym facilities in your workplace! To start, you begin to build positive workplace culture by clearly communicating the companies vision and talking with, and understanding the needs of your employees. Overcoming a challenging culture can seem an arduous task, but with the correct approach, you can achieve world-class results.
