Transitions and Mergers - Communication, Consistency, and Clarity
Bottom Line: Define the moment or the moment will define you. Publicly define and develop employee buy-in for the company's culture during transition and mergers. Since your men and women in the field define your culture, how do your employees handle different opportunities to perform distinctively and extra-ordinarily?
