Culture Workshop Recap: It's All About Culture

The evolution of executive search over the last 30 years has been remarkable. As part of that evolution, TRANSEARCH’s Chicago office has doubled down on its focus to identify the leader that best fits the needs and culture of the organization, and how that leader can contribute to the culture of the company. In the fall of 2017, TRANSEARCH hosted several events in Chicago with its Leadership Advisor, Dr. John O. Burdett. As an executive and as a consultant, John Burdett has worked in over 40 countries for businesses that are household names.

Culture Workshop Recap: It's All About Culture

1871 john burdett culture

At the height of the 1871 event, John Burdett asked an open question to the participants: “Who drives the culture into the organization?”
Faces around the room looked puzzled and quiet.
After a few moments, John interjected: “Most people, myself included many years ago, would tell you ‘Everyone!’ But that’s not accurate (or helpful). The front-line employees are where your culture manifests itself most with your customers, so middle-managers are the ones that drive culture into front-line employees. If middle-managers don’t buy in, the company doesn’t buy in.”

Fractional adjustments to strategy and performance can make or break results in manufacturing more so than in almost any other industry. A globally integrated supply chain is the new normal. Here at TRANSEARCH we recognize that with intensified competition from overseas and increasingly demanding investors, there is no room for mediocrity. Logistical costs are rising, wages in overseas labor markets are surging, and intellectual property rights are routinely threatened. Meanwhile, principles of Lean and Six Sigma are transcending the shop floor and being applied in boardroom strategy.
