Research shows that high-performing cultures consistently deliver extraordinary results and outperform their peers. Culture determines how things are done, how people behave, and how value is created. As former IBM CEO Lou Gerstner states, “Culture isn't just one aspect of the game, it is the game.” Yet a high- performing culture is made up of employees that are healthy, self- governing, and high-performing themselves. Without leaders and employees that possess these qualities, there is little hope of positively transforming our organizations. This is why we believe that establishing a PLE culture is foundational to creating a long- term, sustainable, high-performing organizational culture.
