Organizational Culture and Leadership
Edgar Schein explores how leadership and culture are fundamentally intertwined, and reveals key findings about leadership and culture including:
Leaders are entrepreneurs and the main architects of culture
Once cultures are formed they influence what kind of leadership is possible
If elements of the culture become dysfunctional, it is the leader's responsibility to do something to speed up culture change.
In addition, the book contains new information that reflects culture at different levels of analysis from national and ethnic macroculture to team-based microculture.
