Discussion guide from today’s conversation with John Mattone:
1. Why do 75% of all business transformations fail?
2. How can companies know when it’s time to implement a transformation program?
3. If leadership is key for driving transformation, then it’s essential that companies develop great leaders. How can they do this?
4. You write that “thinking different and thinking big” is imperative for great leadership. What do you mean?
5. Why are changing mindsets and changing behavior important? Can leaders really change the way people think and behave at work?
6. In CULTURAL TRANSFORMATIONS, you identify five types of organizational culture: “can do,” “will do,” “must do,” “individual performance,” and “team performance.” Why is it essential to define a company’s culture? Are certain types of cultures optimal? Should companies strive to create them?
7. “You have to measure your culture.”
8. “A comfort zone is a disease.”
9. What is the one thing that business leaders can do today to start the process for change?
