Here it is – part 5…and the last…of my 2012 blog series, “Workplace Culture – What Works and What Doesn’t.” Did I save the best topic for last? Maybe…you be the judge.
Workplace dynamics affects us all. Whether you work for a small business or a large organization, business cultures all share one thing in common ….people. It’s how companies manage their most valued assets…their employees…that will determine the success or failure of a company. An organization’s communication policies, leadership skills, and advancement training programs are just a few of the components that determine whether a business culture is ultimately collaborative or hostile.
I’ve categorized the 23 blogs in this series by relevant subjects…so jump right in. You’ll find blogs and articles that provide insight on a variety of topics that scream for change in the workplace and those that provide a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Here’s a sneak peek at what you’ll find in the blog links below:

2013 Engagement, Retention & Growth Summit
I recently concluded another successful year at TIGERS Success Series with a conference-based training summit a few weeks ago – Engagement, Retention & Growth. I, along with 9 other industry leaders, presented 10 viable solutions on how organizations can go beyond surviving the recent recession to thriving! If you missed it, don’t worry. I am planning another summit in Feb 2013 and will post details on how to register in upcoming blogs. Research collected from the past 3 recessions by the Harvard Business Review showed that only 9% of businesses come out of a recession stronger than ever. This means that 91% of businesses failed, were acquired, or merely limped along. So you won’t want to miss my February summit!
