Amazon.com Review in the United States on May 7, 2024

“As a steadfast advocate for transformative leadership and creating human-centric workplaces, I find Jamie Notter and Maddie Grant’s insightful exploration in their latest book particularly resonant. It adeptly tackles the pervasive issue of “Awkward Collaboration,” where organizations inadvertently undermine their efficacy by disproportionately valuing individual contributions over group synergy. What truly stands out in this book is its practical approach to identifying and addressing the deeply ingrained cultural patterns that hinder meaningful change.”

What You Get in This Book:

We bust the myths that culture is hard to understand or time-consuming to change. We explain culture and culture change in plain and actionable language, so you can start working on it right away.

Our original research reveals eight hidden culture patterns that are prevent you from having the culture you really want. There is a chapter each on the “big four” of awkward collaboration, lagging transparency, heavy agility, and incomplete innovation. You will finally understand why you have been struggling in these areas. For example, many organizations don’t realize that their desire to control information causes them to be less transparent than they want to be.

We have real case studies in each chapter that demonstrate how to change your culture and overcome the common patterns that are holding you back. For example, the case study that learned how to collaborate effectively across silo lines make key changes to its project management processes to get better results.

Our “playbook” model is simple, yet effective. We’ll break your culture change activities into six basic categories that help you make change quickly, and then sustain it over time. You’ll learn how simple process changes in areas like staff meeting design or project evaluation can have a huge impact on culture and behavior.

Everyone can use this book to start changing culture right away. The top will learn how to get intentional about culture design, including measuring the impact of culture change on the bottom line, while the middle and the bottom will learn how to make changes in their own areas that improve culture for their own teams.
