ABSTRACT
The article emphasizes the importance of maintaining a healthy corporate culture. Healthy corporate culture emanates positive energy, feel good to customers, and draw employees to want to work in them and with them. When a culture is healthy, people work together synergistically to achieve goals. People feel included and valued, and everyone learns and grows. It is a place they want to work, a place they are proud of. Reorganization, restructuring, and downsizing create environments of fear, worry, and stress, where people feel they need to protect themselves. Leaders can reduce stress and build support by monitoring their extreme behaviors. Learning how to listen for signals of cultural health enables leaders to identify problems. As leaders become aware of distress signals, they can transform negative stress into positive energy.
