The Culture Gap
About This Show
Daniel Forrester, an expert in culture and strategy, is sitting down with leaders across industries—both commercial and not-for-profit—to learn how they are closing the gaps between their business visions and the culture of their organizations. From seemingly insurmountable turnarounds and mergers to the digitization and automation of business, Culture Gap will explore stories of leaders driving massive change and building movements through their purpose, values, and vision.
As the world moves rapidly toward technology and automation, it is the health of organizational culture that will make or break the long-term success of every organization. In Culture Gap, you’ll hear the inside story from leaders facing tremendous business challenges and navigating the shifting culture both inside and outside of their organizations. They’ll share stories of their victories both large and small, as well as their lessons learned. You will also discover how purpose-built cultures can help close the gaps caused by employee turnover, lost customers, and other challenges.
