IN THIS SUMMARY
In today's competitive business world, attracting and retaining top talent has never been more crucial or more difficult, costly, and time consuming. Thus, in order to remain competitive, companies must strive to become “employers of choice”-organizations at which people aspire to work and to which they remain loyal. The key to achieving this status is a rethinking and a revitalization of corporate culture.
Embracing Excellence provides guidelines (based on extensive research of company practices that really work and those that have only superficial value or even negative effects) for helping managers develop and strengthen strong leadership and organizational behavior that will be effective in building solid relationships between managers and their staff. The authors also introduce the Organizational MRI as a holistic diagnostic tool that organizations can use to evaluate and improve their corporate cultures.
