Developing and maintaining a strong corporate culture and engaged employees is one of the most critical and challenging issues facing business today. Leading for a Positive Culture – How the Meerkats Formed a Family and Other Stories is as entertaining as it is educational. Three short African animal fables relate to three key principles for creating a culture that encourages and supports engaged, productive employees. ‘Business breakout’ sections in each fable give practical guidelines for tackling the challenge through a new way of thinking about business leadership, even in tough times.
