What It Takes to Build Organizational Excellence
In this webcast, Stanford professor and bestselling author Robert Sutton will explore what it takes for leaders and teams to spread better beliefs and actions throughout an organization. Sutton will reveal how the best leaders and teams develop, deploy, and instill the right mindsets in their people -- rather than ruining or watering down the very things that have fueled successful growth in the past.

These tactics will be explained using examples from organizations ranging from start-ups, like Pulse News and Citrus Lane, to medium-size firms, such as IDEO and Pixar, to large firms, including Google, Procter & Gamble, IKEA, and General Electric, to healthcare systems, including Kaiser Permanente, to not-for-profits, including the Girl Scouts, to government organizations, including the U.S. Army and the Transportation Security Administration.
