These guiding principles have to be identified at the top of the organization and it has to be made part of everything an organization does. Mid-level managers and frontline folks have no chance (absolutely none) to make this change by themselves. Now there are somethings at the micro-level that good managers anywhere in the organization can implement to achieve local success but no team within any company can thrive all by itself but do need the support of others. It is at this intersection of responsibilities that individuals face resistance to principles/ideals/guidelines if they are not espoused, encouraged or formalized at the enterprise level. Ultimately everything comes back to "Culture".. every organization has one..but does the prevailing culture support and foster creating "sustainable" winning teams ?
