By S. Chris Edmonds Published Dec. 20, 2013 8:30 a.m.

“Most senior leaders put greater thought into their organization’s products than they do its culture. Yet culture drives everything that happens in an organization each day, including what leaders pay attention to, whether problems are ignored or resolved, and how employees and customers are treated.
