WEAK Cultures vs STRONG cultures at the workplace

Adopted from the lessons learnt from Simon Sinek’s amazing book , The Infinite Game , the following extract highlights the subtle differences between Weak and Strong Cultures..

And in the process, they do damage to the trust inside and outside the organization. In strong cultures, people find safety in relationships. Strong relationships are the foundation of high-performing teams. And all high-performing teams start with trust.”
