Tool Telecon: Addressing Business Axioms in Your Culture

Many CEOs may discover that although they have worked hard to establish a positive and inviting work environment in their company, employees may still interpret different intentions through cultural mottos commonly spoken with one another. Those mottos can be referred to as business axioms, or statements that we believe to be self-evident truths. Failing to address the shadows that can appear as a response to those business axioms can lead to unintended actions, behaviors or resentment in the culture that affect work output or relationships.
