Corporate Culture
Survive and Thrive - Even in a Bad Economy

Steve Wille - Author, Colorful Leadership

Do you think your organization is going in the right direction?  Do you sometimes feel out of sync with the corporate culture?  Like it or not, you have to play the hand you are dealt.  If you want to survive and thrive in any organization you need to play your cards strategically.  Pick your direction and go for it, but avoid unnecessary battles that could end your career.  Along the way pay attention to how the people around you feel about what you are doing.  Will they be with you or against you?

This presentation is based on the new book, Colorful Leadership.  We will take a disciplined approach in assessing a situation from three perspectives to build a complete image of the current reality.  Next, we will examine our choice of action.  Sometimes a passive, wait and see approach is the best strategy.  Other time a much more aggressive, make it happen approach offers the biggest payback.  Either way, it has to be constructive if you want something good to come out of it.


  1. Learn how to rapidly assess a situation,
  2. Practice finding at least three alternative courses of action.
  3. Think strategically and focus on the future when choosing the best alternative.

This will be an interactive session with an opportunity to observe a situation and practice the skills.

Steve Wille is a senior applications manager at Great-West Life & Annuity.  He has over 25 years experience in corporate technology management.  His article on Constructive Conflict has been published internationally and his most recent book, Colorful Leadership, was published in 2008.
