TrueSpace Fall Speaker Series
TrueSpace hosted New York Times Bestselling Author, Curt Coffman, last week for conversation around the secrets of high performing organizations and the cultures that drive their success. Coffman shared research from his book, Culture Eats Strategy for Lunch and delivered a presentation on the practices of extraordinary cultures and their uninspiring counterparts. From there, the connection between two fundamental pieces of a successful organization, strategy and culture were explored. Coffman guided the audience through the importance of creating a strategy that fits your culture and offered practical implications for how to turn culture into a competitive advantage, rather than the enemy of strategy. He then shared significant characteristics that the top culture have in common; being specific about practices and organizational uniqueness, deliberate values, and making clear how all elements attract and keep customers. Coffman left the audience, a total of 31 attendees (7 of which were either Partner Members, Business Members, or Capital Partners) with practical action items they could implement immediately in their own companies.
