Culture for the Left-Brained Leader

Andrew Kim

A Strategic Advantage for the Long-Term Horizon

Think that processes and systems alone can get your company where it needs to go? Think again!

The long-term horizon needs to be supported by a strategically built organizational culture, or your bottom line will be impacted. But how do you move the needle on that when it seems so nebulous?

Plenty of books highlight the importance of culture in successful companies, but they don’t show you how to actually build it, overcome associated challenges, align it with strategy, and leverage that infrastructure for the next level of growth.

Culture for the Left-Brained Leader combines lessons from practical insights to shift this from a vague, undefined concept into a strategic and tactical advantage that you can implement on your own.

Unlock the transformative power of your organization with this comprehensive, no-nonsense, non-patronizing guide that will teach you everything you need to know to build an ecosystem where innovation flourishes, ownership is commonplace, problems are organically solved, and moonshot results are achieved.
