Building a culture of success

Executives from Dale Carnegie talk to the 'Bangkok Post' about their recent paper linking financial results with company culture.

Mr Van Doorne this week led a corporate culture group exercise in Bangkok. Dale Carnegie works in 89 countries with various cultures.

Will improving my company's culture drive my stock price up? In the long term it probably will, says Preeyakorn Mimaphunt, Thailand managing director of Dale Carnegie, and Jean-Louis Van Doorne, Dale Carnegie's New York-based senior vice-president.

Company culture affects workplace engagement, and workplace engagement affects financial performance, Mr Van Doorne says.

Culture is the "unconscious thoughts that drive employee decisions and behaviours each day and are used to solve internal and external challenges over time ... It determines how employees see themselves as part of an organisation, how they make strategic decisions and how they approach problem solving," he says.
