Culture change is difficult to achieve. Most people think they have done things for years a certain way, why should they change. As a leader at sometime you will be required to make culture changes. Once you get one person to do something a different way and they find the new way easier and they meet with success in doing the task different and the new way becomes the norm you just changed a culture. There is a circular flow of the organization, behavior, success and culture as shown below.BehaviorCultureSuccess
