When organizations design elements of their culture, they are designed in a vertical fashion – from the top-down. To ensure that your organization is thriving and sustainable, your cultural elements need to be horizontally integrated. Culture is something that touches every part of your organization. To make real progress within your organization, we must learn to take our intentions everywhere.
