Intersection Between Culture and Leadership
Organizational culture and leadership go hand in hand in building, driving and enhancing organizational performance. A critical component of team building is culture, because if teams are to work effectively, staff at all levels must understand and embrace the culture of the particular group and organization. There’s no doubt that today, more than ever before, a leader’s success depends on how he or she molds and develops that culture. Join Truth Initiative’s CEO, Robin Koval and Senior Vice President, Anna Spriggs, in a robust discussion moderated by Nonprofit HR's Lisa Brown Alexander, about how the organization’s leadership team embarked upon an intentional strategy to reshape Truth Initiative’s culture. Attendees will learn strategies for identifying what type of individual is cut out to lead an organization that is first defined by culture and learn about the challenges and successes of Truth Initiative from the perspective of two key leaders who hold important yet different levels of accountability for ensuring Truth Initiative’s success.
This session is co-facilitated by Robin Koval and Lisa Brown Alexander.
