Team culture in the workplace: A group of young professionals sit in discussion around a computer desk

It’s no secret that without a business strategy, you don’t get results. Your strategy is your map to achieving your objectives and your vision. But here’s the thing – your team culture eats your strategy for breakfast.

Does that sound familiar? “Culture eats strategy for breakfast” was made famous by well-known management expert, Peter Drucker.

When you break it down, it means no matter how powerful your strategy is, its success relies on the people who deliver it.

When you have an engaged, high-performing team, your business thrives. Your team are aligned with the values and direction of your business and want to go the extra mile.

However, when your team is showing unhealthy signs, not only is your strategy impacted, so is your team morale, your client services and your bottom line.
