If Your Culture Could Talk

A Story Of Culture Change 

In Tom Krause’s newest book, the CEO of a prominent organization is shocked when a catastrophic event occurs, seemingly out of the blue. An investigation finds the culture of the organization as the primary cause. The troubled CEO must find a way of addressing it, rapidly and in measurable terms, but he has no clear vision for how to do it. His concern and frustration build—until suddenly and surprisingly, a mysterious source of intelligence enters the scene and changes the game.

A Fresh Perspective on Culture and Leadership

Using an entertaining, narrative format, If Your Culture Could Talk, shines a light on the ways in which the leaders of a troubled organization have shaped that organization’s culture. The candid, humorous, and brutally honest voice of culture offers a perspective that the leadership team has struggled to see on their own, despite town hall meetings and employee surveys with seemingly positive data trends.

For any leader who is struggling to build, redefine, or enhance culture, If Your Culture Could Talk offers an eye-opening third-party perspective and practical advice, based in Dr. Krause’s decades of research into organizational functioning, decision-making, leadership, and behavior.

“I liked the direct, no-nonsense approach that using the Culture Creature afforded in dialog with the characters.”

“I enjoyed your book!  I like the approach you have taken to tell the story/journey. Almost like a third-party perspective listening in on a company struggling with improving culture.”
MATT WALKER
Former VP Operations, GSK Vaccines
“I like the style of interplay between the culture creature and the leaders. At first, I wasn’t sure how the “edgy style” landed but over time I do think it adds to the interest.”
BILL READDY
Former Associate Administrator of the Office of Space Flight, at NASA Headquarters
“I liked the direct, no-nonsense approach that using the Culture Creature afforded in dialog with the characters.  I thought it brought out in a humorous, but compelling way the main points about leaderships’ accountability for the organization’s culture and the acknowledgement that the culture is a reflection of the leaders’ strengths, weaknesses, values, ignorance, priorities and oversights.”

Leading With Safety by Tom Krause, Krause Bell Group

Building on years of research and experience in the field, Leading with Safety redefines organizational safety as an activity that both leads other performance areas and in turn must be led. Thomas Krause poses the question, “What does it take to be a great safety leader?” — and answers with a comprehensive new model for understanding safety leadership as it affects organizational culture and safety climate. Leading with Safety defines the practices, tools, and systems essential to creating an injury-free workplace, including the role of employees at each level, special considerations for coaching the senior executive leader, and the two crucial aspects of human performance that every leader needs to know. Ending with inspiring real-world examples or organizations that have put these tools into practice, Leading with Safety is written for any leader who wants to lead with safety toward a more robust, productive and effective organization.
