These five cultural archetypes are: Customer-focused culture; One-team culture; Innovation culture; Achievement culture; and People-first culture. He explains that it’s not possible to implement all five at the same time but any business leader or manager can start by outlining how important organizational culture is for both their business and employees and build the five archetypes one by one. You will also learn the key values for each of the five archetypes of organizational culture. This course will be of great interest to business leaders and managers who are growing a business or organization and who want to develop and grow a workplace culture that will benefit both their employees and customers.
