A Winning Culture In Government

Why Culture Matters

It’s no surprise that many government employees are less engaged than ever before and that leaders feel helpless to change the situation.

In many cases, employees and leaders are caught in a vicious cycle. Performance declines, scrutiny increases, and employee paralysis ensues. Repeat.


How do you break this cycle? You change the mindset from “leaders are a select few in the organization” to “everyone can and should be a leader.” Winning Culture in Government shows how this simple yet significant shift is key to creating an effective government organization in the 21st century.


“Over my 25 years with the United States Navy, I saw first hand the power of creating a winning culture, where leaders and team members are effectively accomplishing a purposeful mission […] creating such a culture doesn’t happen by changes; rather, it is deliberately designed. This book speaks to the inner workings of such a design.”
