Leading Thoughts for February 23, 2023

Matt Mayberry on avoiding slogans and no action when transforming your culture:
“Culture is not just about turning values into behaviors. It’s about turning values into repeatable behaviors, into actions that become daily habits that are shared across the organization.

Doing something repeatedly, to the point where it becomes ingrained into what an organization does daily and becomes common practice, is where cultural excellence lies.”
Abraham Lincoln on the requirements for facing new challenges:
“The dogmas of the quiet past, are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise — with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country”
