Why Building a Culture from the Top Down Fails

  1. Lack of Employee Buy-In
  2. Disconnect from Reality
  3. Limited Innovation
  4. Reduced Employee Engagement
  5. Resistance to Change
  6. Lack of Adaptability
  7. Erosion of Trust
  8. Inequality and Hierarchical Structures
  9. One-Size-Fits-All Approach
  10. Cultural Mismatch
  11. High Turnover

A culture that emerges organically from the collective values, beliefs, and behaviors of the workforce is more likely to be embraced, enduring, and aligned with the organization’s objectives.
