Employees have ideas and want to be heard. Leadership wants to hear them. Too often, however, employees and leaders both feel that no one cares about making things better. The disconnect typically only widens over time, with both sides becoming more firmly entrenched in their viewpoints.
In Courageous Cultures, authors Karin Hurt and David Dye argue that in our world of rapid change, a ‘Courageous Culture’ is your competitive advantage. Why? Because a Courageous Culture ensures that your company is “sticky” for both customers and employees.
The authors explain that becoming a Courageous Culture means building teams of Microinnovators, Problem Solvers, and Customer Advocates working together. They explain these roles, along with practical tools to uncover, leverage, and scale the best ideas from every level of your organization. Courageous Cultures provides a road map to build a high-performance, high-engagement culture around sharing ideas, solving problems, and rewarding contributions from all levels.
