Organizational productivity is linked to the organization’s culture. If the organization’s culture is of one which stuffs out ideas, limits creativity, or enables backstabbing then it will implode. However, if your organization embraces a culture where people can talk, collaborate, and resolve conflicts then it’ll be a highly productive culture.
For 30 years as a management consultant, executive coach, and facilitator, Liz Kislik has helped clients such as American Express, Orvis, The Girl Scouts, Comcast, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, and Highlights for Children solve their thorniest problems while strengthening their top and bottom lines. Her specialty is developing high performing leaders and teams. Liz is a frequent contributor to Harvard Business Review, Forbes, and Entrepreneur, and gave a TEDx talk on “Why There’s So Much Conflict at Work and What You Can Do to Fix It.” She has served as adjunct faculty at Hofstra University and New York University.
