The Culture Playbook

Tim Kight, Focus 3

Execution happens at the intersection of strategy and culture. If you ask for behavior in your strategy that is not supported by your culture, you will struggle to execute. 

Culture is what people believe, how they behave, and the outcomes they produce. An organization competes on the basis of how people behave. Winning behavior will not thrive in a culture that doesn’t support it. Exceptional leaders create a culture that engages hearts and minds, energizes action, and executes with discipline. When that happens, results follow.

Tim Kight, founder of Focus 3, will share his Culture Playbook process that will help you clarify the Core Beliefs, Key Behaviors, and Desired Outcomes that are necessary for daily execution.
