What do we know about culture? As Peter Drucker put it, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” We can’t regulate our way to the balance between freedom and structure, autonomy and abandonment.

“It takes conversations, not policies.”

Sarah Rice, Chief People officer at Skynamo reflects on culture within organisations and the issues underlying behaviours.

“We are not the wardens, or guardians, of culture — we’re the gardeners.”
