Through her extensive work with leadership assessment and hiring, Ginny has experienced and witnessed the impact – both positive and negative – that leaders’ behaviors can have on an organization’s culture. Concluding that organizational culture is largely an amalgam of the behaviors of senior leaders, she shines a light on some critical leadership responsibilities such as managing conflict, decision making, and dealing with ambiguity. When handled poorly these functions have unintended consequences, such as diminished leadership credibility, low employee morale, weakened financial performance, and a toxic workplace and culture.
