Mahatma Gandhi said, “A nation's culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people." The same can be said of corporate cultures. Effective leaders align employees' beliefs, decisions and behaviors with delivery of growth, cost and risk objectives. Ineffective leaders do just the opposite and often spend their time on seven culture killers. In this program, Aon's Global Culture & Engagement practice leader Ken Oehler and Aon partner Don MacPherson will discuss the framework that great organizations use to shape their corporate culture. They will also talk about how to identify and eradicate culture killers.
