My mentor expressed that her company has a dominant corporate culture that their employees must follow closely. Because of this dominant culture some ideas get dismissed to avoid countering the organizations culture. Because the company is not open and flexible when it comes to culture they risk losing their competitive edge.
4. Discuss the role of structure in the success of an organization with your mentor. As a leader, what decisions has he or she made regarding structure in his or her department or organization? How have these decisions influenced the organization?
