Chapter 12 Leadership and Culture 0Chapter Summary This chapter examines organizational leadership and organizational culture—two factors essential to the successful implementation and execution of a company’s strategic plan. Organizational leadership is guiding and sheparding an organization over time and developing that organization’s future leadership and its organization culture. Good organization leadership involves three considerations: clarifying strategic intent, building an organization, and shaping the organization’s culture. Leaders use education, principles, and perseverance to build their organization. Leaders start to shape organizational culture by the passion they bring to their role, and their choice and development of young manager and future leaders. Understanding seven sources of power and influence, rather than just the power of position and punishment, is a critical skill for effective future leaders to grasp. Organizational culture is the set of important assumptions, values, beliefs, and norms that members of an organization share in common. The organizational leader plays a critical role in developing, sustaining, and changing organizational culture. Ethical standards, the leader’s basis for differentiating right from wrong, quickly spread as a centerpiece between the leader and the organization’s culture. Leaders use many means to reinforce and develop their organization’s culture—from rewards and appointments to storytelling and rituals. Managing the strategy-culture relationship requires different approaches, depending on the match between the demands of the new strategy and the compatibility of the culture with that strategy.
