How Culture Can Eat Your Strategy for Breakfast

Unlock the Secret to Transformative Organisational Success

It’s easy to forget about the basics that make a company successful when you’re focused on strategic innovation and execution all the time. Many leaders prioritise strategy over culture. This mistake could lead to disengaged employees and a lack of new ideas. A brilliant strategy, no matter how well-crafted, can fail if the organisational culture is not supportive.

Studies indicate that organisations with strong cultures outperform their competitors in terms of financial returns. A Harvard Business School study found that a good company culture increases net income by 765% over 10 years, emphasising the importance of culture for long-term success.

We worked with Matthews Australasia, a leader in product identification and software traceability systems, to demonstrate how culture can alter leadership and organisational development.

Matthews used our CATALYST Programme, a complete transformational leadership initiative, to align their business strategy with company values, improve leadership, and create a culture of engagement, collaboration, and creativity.

We worked with Matthews over 18 months and the results were profound. Participants reported significant improvements in their leadership effectiveness, with noticeable increases in trust and engagement within their teams. The program’s success at Matthews underscores a universal truth: culture is not just part of the game—it is the game.
